DETAILED STORYLINE

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Suspense Drama - This is a fact-based drama aimed at older adults. Fans of Jason Clarke will enjoy this lead showcase, and while Ed Helms has only a small role, this serious change of pace will please his fans. Kate Mara only has a small role. Adult subject matter and some language make the film not for kids, who would not be interested anyhow.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average ...for those who are drawn to re-creations of historical controversies that pack more gravitas and outright tragedy, "Chappaquiddick” could prove satisfying enough, especially with the in-vogue-again Kennedy clan at the center.

NY Post Full Review
Good This film is very obviously anti-Ted Kennedy. Clarke, a marvelous actor, gives a perfect performance as the eventual Lion of the Senate. He never becomes too likable, too villainous, too clownish or too reverent...

Rolling Stone Full Review
Good The film is corrosive in its take on the injustice that allowed Ted to live and prosper in a protective bubble of privilege. Clarke makes it clear that the man himself most likely felt the same way.

Newsday Full Review
Good ... riveting drama... With a combination of careful detail and dramatic license, "Chappaquiddick” (sharply written by Taylor Allen and Andrew Logan) is guaranteed to stir new outrage over one of the foulest-smelling stories — and one of the most audacious comebacks — in modern politics.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
The scandal and mysterious events surrounding the tragic drowning of a young woman, as Ted Kennedy drove his car off the infamous bridge, are revealed in the new movie starring Jason Clarke as Ted Kennedy and Kate Mara as Mary Jo Kopechne. Not only did this event take the life of an aspiring political strategist and Kennedy insider, but it ultimately changed the course of presidential history forever. Through true accounts, documented in the inquest from the investigation in 1969, director John Curran and writers Andrew Logan and Taylor Allen, intimately expose the broad reach of political power, the influence of America's most celebrated family; and the vulnerability of Ted Kennedy, the youngest son, in the shadow of his family legacy.
