PG-13 | | Drama, History, Thriller
Depicting Ted Kennedy's involvement in the fatal 1969 car accident that claims the life of a young campaign strategist, Mary Jo Kopechne.
Part of the film was filmed in Rockport, Massachusetts.
You'll never be great.
Although Bruce Dern makes a powerful (albeit mostly mute) appearance in the film in the role of Joseph Kennedy Sr., Ted's mother Rose is not depicted at all. What a strange decision to utterly omit her in the interest of tight storytelling, given the significant presence she surely must have been during those days.
