Taylor Swift set for Sundance debut

Taylor Swift will honor her heroine Ethel Kennedy at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah on Friday (20Jan12) when she attends the premiere of a new biopic about the socialite and humanitarian.

The singer will make her debut at the film event when she flies in for the screening of Rory Kennedy's Ethel.

The director and her mother are also expected to be in Park City for the premiere.

In the current issue of Vogue, Taylor Swift talks about her feelings for Kennedy, explaining she was left "starstruck" by a recent meeting with Robert Kennedy's widow, stating, "She is one of my favourites, because you look back at the pictures of her and Bobby and they always look like they are having the most fun out of everybody."
