Synopsis Dramatizing this revealing episode in the history of American dynastic politics and political theater, director John Curran portrays Senator Kennedy as half stooge of his family legacy, half schemer, equally paralyzed by ego and insecurity.Forsaking sensationalism for sober, procedural storytelling, the film examines the toxic effects of the Kennedy mystique on a handful of people involved in a fatal car crash in the summer of 1969.CHAPPAQUIDDICK does a remarkably economical job of encapsulating the madness of that week without overwhelming us with historical detail. The story moves from moment to moment, day to day, with clarity and great dramatic effect...3 stars out of 4 -- Thanks to the deep grain of ferocity and consuming frailty that Clarke builds into his performance we get inside Ted's head.Clarke, with a bit of makeup, looks the part to an astonishing degree...Ed Helms, as Ted’s harried cousin and adviser Joe Gargan, has the most to do among the supporting cast, while Mara registers sympathetically and...[A] damningly even-handed work, a sober reconstruction that slowly, but surely, digs into the queasy realities of scandal management.Based on real events, Chappaquiddick tells the story of the 1969 incident in which Senator Ted Kennedy (Jason Clarke) drove his car into a lake, killing campaign strategist Mary Jo Kopechne (Kate Mara). Kennedy fled the scene and didn't inform the police for ten hours. His confidantes and his father, Joseph P. Kennedy Sr. (Bruce Dern), attempt to use the power of their family's political dynasty to spin the story, avert scandal, and protect Ted's presidential aspirations. Ed Helms, Jim Gaffigan, and Taylor Nichols co-star. Directed by John Curran.
