Movie review: Chappaquiddick

I wholeheartedly recommend this movie to anyone who remembers this tragic event that dominated the news for months. Even though we all know the outcome of tragedy, what we are not privy to is how the outcome was reached. I appreciate the fact that writers, Andrew Logan and Taylor Allen, resisted the temptation to “Hollywood Up” the story by needlessly adding salacious details that would ultimately dilute the political impact of *Chappaquiddick*.

The acting was respectable, the pacing was well done, and the directing was spot-on. If political drama is of your liking then take a couple of hours out of your weekend and enjoy this intriguing movie.

Grade: B

RunPee Mom is our emotional bedrock. Without her, RunPee never would have lasted a decade as an app (which is since the dawn of time in internet years). She’s our biggest cheerleader and an unending source of unconditional love. She works cheerfully and tirelessly, seeing any movie we ask of her, writing interesting reviews, and being our…well…MOM. Her genres of choice: kiddie flicks, animated movies, emotional dramas, historical features, war films, diverse biographies, and even dense, diabolically plotted thrillers. She knows more about famous and infamous figures in history than said figures probably knew about themselves. She’s the Quiz Manager for the RunPee.com blog, and Assistant Facebook Manager for our social media efforts. If you’ve interacted with someone on our Facebook page, you’ve most likely been given a virtual hug by RunPee Mom.
