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
