CHAPPAQUIDDICK Official Film Trailer… And More
Chappaquiddick presents a critical look into Ted Kennedy’s behavior on the evening that ended with the death of Mary Jo Kopechne. Kennedy did not report the accident until 10 hours later, with Kopechne drowning inside the car. The film implies that Kennedy’s accident was a result of drunk driving and not a blameless tragedy. Kennedy was charged with leaving the scene of an accident and received a two-month suspended jail sentence.
Despite the controversies that have haunted one of America’s most powerful families over the half century, they still seem as committed as ever to politics. Rep. Joe Kennedy III, the grandson of President Kennedy’s brother Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, gave the Democratic Party’s official response to President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address in January.
Chappaquiddick will be released nationwide April 6.
