On July 18, 1969, Sen. Ted Kennedy drives his car off of a bridge on Massachusetts’ Chappaquiddick Island. The accident results in the death of passenger Mary Jo Kopechne, a 28-year-old campaign strategist who worked for Kennedy. The ongoing investigation into the mysterious and scandalous events forever alters his political legacy – and ultimately changes the course of presidential history.
Not knowing much about the Kennedy dynasty (apart from the assassination of JFK) I found this film rather engrossing with a terrific performance from Jason Clarke. Overall very good and definitely one to check out.
