    Pathetic, how could the democrats really elect this guy after this? I guess the media spins things the way they want. Maybe this was during the big switch and this guy was really a republican. Great movie in showing the hypocrisy at it's highest levels.
  • The liberal truth hurts

    Interesting how the left turns a blind eye when it suits them and are willing to offer “reasonable” doubt for the sake of of their liberal agenda.
  • Very Interesting Film.

    Not what you’d expect at all. If you’re just looking to bash the Kennedys or even praise them this movie is not for you. This movie is nothing more than a harrowing account of how badly Teddy Kennedy did not want to be president. Spot on. Great performances. The light tone makes the dark moments really hit IMO.
  • Sheds light to a man that did an nefarious act

    fVery few movies make you feel as if your there when the act was being done. Stuck to the exact line of events and didnt stray at all. One of the most political bias politicians of out times. To see what he would do and stoop so low just see the conformation hearing for Robert Bork and you will see where the democrats got their "mass hysteria" and false narratives from. He should have gotten a life sentence for the murder he commited.
  • Fine Acting And A Timely, Accurate Recount

    This is a political movie by definition and seemingly a lesson never learned. It’s the highly accurate story of a controversial yet effective Senator and Kennedy. My comments will be political but I think in the context of this story are appropriate. If the Kennedys were the first true American Royals, the Clintons I hope are the last. A little Apples and Lemons comparison but lots of similarities. Abuse of power, privilege, dubious loyalty and undying devotion by one political slant to very flawed politicians are how I would describe the similar tales. How we view and accept effective political achievement and personal integrity and morality are a continuing theme in today’s political environment. The movie was well done, the acting was superb and the period was perfectly represented not only by scenery and sets but by accurate personalization of characters and scenes.
  • Awesome!

    We enjoyed the movie very much! It helps support my dislike for the Kennedy families.

    Ed Helms was the only interesting thing about this film. Slow and boring...and I say this even after watching it on a flight! (I can usually enjoy even a bad movie on the plane.) Too bad.
  • Good American history story

    Yes, no one outside of Ted Kennedy will know the true facts 100% but the filmmakers do a great job navigating an often forgotten piece of American history (which derailed a likely “next president”) and another Kennedy tragedy. Jason Clarke does a great job weaving through the emotional transformations of Ted and Bruce Dern is fantastic as the heartless Joe Kennedy. Only miss was spending another 2-3mins with Mary Jo Kopechne’s family to reinforce the true tragic part of this story.
