The Kennedy’s were an American institution. Starting with Joseph and his sons John, Robert and Ted, they ruled American politics during the 20th century. Unfortunately for the Kennedy’s and those close to them, any success or happiness they achieved was overshadowed by controversy and tragedy. Chappaquiddick details the controversial and tragic story that would come to define the Kennedy name.
Chappaquiddick – Trailer
The plot of the film focuses on the Chappaquiddick incident involving then US Senator Ted Kennedy. In 1969, he drove his car off a bridge and into water. While he swam to safety, his passenger and political campaign worker Mary Jo Kopechne drowned inside the car. The details are sketchy from there, and most of it depends on who believe. Do you believe Kennedy, who was trying to save his own ass and career? Judging by the trailer, Ted and his father Joseph are not painted in a positive light. At the very least, the film should give an honest take on such a tragic story.
Chappaquiddick stars Jason Clarke as Ted Kennedy and Kate Mara as Mary Jo Kopechne. The rest of cast is solid as well, including Ed Helms, Bruce Dern and Jim Gaffigan.
