Powerful you are, but free you are not. You can’t take a spur-of the-moment walk around the block, have one cocktail too many or decide to go vegan. (What would the beef lobby say?). Your family is under the same intense scrutiny—meaning that your spouse can’t always speak her mind or pursue her own ambitions and your children can’t really make the mistakes that kids do.
You can see these dynamics played out in fascinating detail in “Graves,” a new original series from EPIX that lifts the curtain on the life and family of former president Richard Graves. Find out what happens as he comes to terms with his mistakes of the past 25 years with an eye toward course-correcting his presidential legacy. And read on to see how real first families have fared at being themselves while living up to the expectations of a fickle public.
