A new drama about the Kennedys, politics, art, media, and what happens when they clash. Based on a true story. More…
In 2000, David Lewis, a sculptor in Cape Cod, designed a statue of John Fitzgerald Kennedy and his son John Jr. both as men walking on the beach. The idea was to give the two a moment together that they never had and to give the Cape a beautiful work of art. 'A Walk on the Beach' explores the controversy that developed when a local paper championed the idea that this statue contradicted, even spit in the face of, history.
