In the riveting suspense drama, CHAPPAQUIDDICK, the scandal and mysterious events surrounding the tragic drowning of a young woman, as Ted Kennedy drove his car off the infamous bridge, are revealed in the new movie starring Jason Clarke as Ted Kennedy and Kate Mara as Mary Jo Kopechne. Not only did this event take the life of an aspiring political strategist and Kennedy insider, but it ultimately changed the course of presidential history forever. Through true accounts, documented in the inquest from the investigation in 1969, director John Curran and writers Andrew Logan and Taylor Allen, intimately expose the broad reach of political power, the influence of America's most celebrated family; and the vulnerability of Ted Kennedy, the youngest son, in the shadow of his family legacy.

May 14, 2018 Thanks to an intriguingly nuanced performance from Australian actor Jason Clarke, Chappaquiddick does more than simply rehash why Kennedy was never able to leave the incident behind.Read in Source
Independent Online (South Africa)
June 05, 2018 The film displays so beautifully how power renders you above reproach, with Kennedy not even taking enough time to make up for causing Kopechne's death.Read in Source

May 18, 2018 Curran has filled his North Eastern insular universe with a delightful smorgasbord of mostly unfamiliar character faces, all of whom look, feel and sound like 1969. Along with its other qualities, the film is a textbook example of good casting.Read in Source
April 12, 2018 Clarke makes us feel plenty of things we'd rather not. His eyes are shadowed with profound decency one minute, and hollowed out in desperate calculation the next.Read in Source
April 06, 2018 Chappaquiddick is heavy-handed history, a film that at times seems to owe as much to The X-Files as the many cinematic dives into the target-rich territory that is the Kennedy clan.Read in Source
April 09, 2018 The sketches of Kennedy-family tensions and loyalties are thin and simplistic; the action rushes by with little insight or context.Read in Source
May 20, 2018 A solid film that keeps you guessing on the facts, "Chappaquiddick" is an unbiased attempt to tell the story everyone thinks they know.Read in Source
San Francisco Chronicle
April 10, 2018 If you're looking for something to make you feel good about chubby, cherubic Ted, the venerable lion of the Senate, this is not your movie.Read in Source
April 19, 2018 In the end Chappaquiddick will have to pass the same test as Kennedy's original version of the story-whether or not anyone will buy it.Read in Source
New York Observer
April 10, 2018 A film of integrity and disclosure, a controversial chapter in American history that substitutes clinical accuracy for Hollywood embellishment, with an impressive attention to detail and an admirable respect for suspenseful narrative.Read in Source
ABC Radio Brisbane
May 20, 2018 I wasn't fully convinced by the lead performance of Australian Jason Clarke. There are moments where his character is so dumb but others where he is so shrewd.Read in Source
June 12, 2018 Chappaquiddick might work best as an indictment of everything from political dynasties to impropriety among elected officials to society's short attention span, but the movie also serves up a solid character study.Read in Source
