Check out the lively Q&A after the screenings with director John Curran, actor Jason Clarke,
and screenwriters Andrew Logan and Taylor Allen
We believe we know what happened that night. We’ve read the newspaper articles, watched the t.v. reports, or, as most Island stories travel, heard it through the grapevine. Jason Clarke (Mudbound, Zero Dark Thirty) masterfully takes on the role of Senator Ted Kennedy in the days surrounding the infamous car crash in the summer of 1969. He is supported by a stellar cast including Kate Mara, Ed Helms, Jim Gaffigan, and Bruce Dern. This suspenseful historical drama goes beyond the accident on Chappaquiddick, to explore the relationship between the senator and his father in the wake of the assassinations of his brothers John and Robert.
