Eyes Open After “Chappaquidick”
Growing up in the 60’s, and a fan of JFK, I recall reading about this event as an unfortunate driving accident involving Kennedy’s younger brother Ted and his secretary Mary Jo, who had been drinking at a party, and were probably having an affair. Seeing this movie, I can’t help but think it should have been made a long time ago, as so much is revealed about what really happened. But, I still think this is an important film for my generation and younger people who tend to hero worship without uncovering the tragic flaws. It’s also a dramatic eye-opener about the political machinations used to retain power. The actors are good, the story is compelling, but more time spent on Ted before and after would have made it better. And I came away sad about Mary Jo and her family in view of her dedication to a worthy cause.
Very good production. Almost dead on history worth seeing.
For those that grew up with the Kennedys, and anyone that didn’t (ie, everyone) this story needs to be told. I think the movie was done well – acting and production – but that is not the purpose of the movie.
I knew a lot of what happened from reading over the years. But – this was an amazing portrayal, and accessible to the story for those less interested in politics.
The bottom line? At least Ted, (and if you know the history – his father) were very compromised people. They would, in the end, do anything for power no matter who got in their way. (And as the movie shows, there were always people that would work for them, or vote for them, and dismiss the truth that they knew about them.) From all things that have come out – John and Bobby had great similarities (especially with women).
I hope younger people look at this. Ted’s faults were his own demons to a great degree – and these were portrayed very well. I would say what we have seen in the last few years is even more damaging to us, and more corrupt. And – if it takes a movie just to say – that people in politics ARE that dirty and DO lie that much – it will be useful for our country.
