Depicting Ted Kennedy's involvement in the fatal 1969 car accident that claims the life of a young campaign strategist, Mary Jo Kopechne.
When Ted is being chastised by his lawyers for his actions, they refer to his actions as "John Wayne stuff." Bruce Dern, who plays Joseph Kennedy, Sr. in this film, had previously appeared with Wayne in the film The Cowboys, killing his character. ... ...
One of Kennedy's advisers uses the term "as pure as Mother Teresa." Although the BBC aired a documentary in the UK on Mother Teresa in 1969, it was not until 1971 that the US knew of her work through the book, " Something Beautiful for God."
