Chappaquiddick giveaway

The untold true story of the scandal that changed the world

Chappaquiddick is a piercing reexamination of the true murky events surrounding the most difficult seven days of Senator Ted Kennedy’s career. In the aftermath of a fatal car accident in 1969 that claims the life of a young campaign strategist, Mary Jo Kopechne, Ted Kennedy’s life and political career become derailed.

Directed by John Curran (Tracks, The Painted Veil) from a screenplay by Taylor Allen and Andrew Logan, Chappaquiddick features a strong ensemble cast, including Jason Clarke (Ted Kennedy), Kate Mara (Mary Jo Kopechne), Olivia Thirlby and Academy Award-nominated actor Bruce Dern as Joe Kennedy.
