Synopsis:
The curse of a family legacy and a web of lies that altered the course of US political history... On July 18,1969, Senator Ted Kennedy (Jason Clarke) drives his car off of a bridge on Massachusetts' Chappaquiddick Island. The accident results in the death of passenger Mary Jo Kopechne, (Kate Mara) a 28-year-old campaign strategist who worked for the Kennedy's. The ongoing investigation into the mysterious and scandalous events forever alters his political legacy - and ultimately changes the course of presidential history.

Engrossing - The Senator review by JD

Spoiler Alert
09/10/2018

I was living and working in the USA in 1969 and remember the Chappaquiddick incident very well.

This movie reveals Ted Kennedy as being heartless ambitious and ruthless .

Very well acted ( scene stealer by Bruce Dern as Joe Kennedy) and almost unblelievable in the depiction of how Ted tries to get away with manslaughter and the sad death of Mary Joe.

Edge of the seat discussions on the planning of his defence and how he trie to con the American voter in accepting his lies.
