‘Chappaquiddick’ hits the right notes as low-key historical drama
In "Chappaquiddick," the new bio-pic by director John Curran ("Praise," "The Painted Veil," "Stone"), I did not really see Jason Clarke ("Lawless," "The Chicago Code," "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes") as Ted Kennedy.
At least, in the beginning.
I have been a fan of Clarke, especially since his role as George Wilson in "The Great Gatsby," and have been waiting for him to get a starring role that he could sink his teeth into.
His portrayal of Ted Kennedy may not be it, but it was close.
‘Chappaquiddick’ avoids Ted Kennedy-Mary Jo Kopechne crash conspiracy theories, partisan politics
The producer of "Chappaquiddick" took an unusual approach in making the film by deliberately avoiding conspiratorial excess and partisan fury.
"It's a piece of history. You can't worry about the politics," said producer Mark Ciardi. "We just present the facts as we know them. It's supposed to make you think and feel conflicted."
He expressed confidence that audiences won't view the film as a hit job on Democrats in general or the Kennedys in particular.
‘Chappaquiddick’ puts focus on aftermath of Kennedy accident
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jason Clarke plunged into frigid waters, repeatedly, for his role as the late Sen. Ted Kennedy in "Chappaquiddick."
The Australian actor said his research about the accident that thwarted Kennedy's presidential chances included jumping into Poucha Pond, the same waters the Massachusetts Democrat's car crashed into in July 1969, killing Mary Jo Kopechne.

‘Chappaquiddick’ movie recalls Ted Kennedy-Mary Jo Kopechne 1969 crash
The "lion of the Senate" is getting a posthumous close-up, and admirers of the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy might not like what they see.
"Chappaquiddick," in theaters April 6, recalls the 1969 car accident in which Kennedy campaign strategist Mary Jo Kopechne died, casting a permanent shadow over his political career.

Blake Lively stars in oddball thriller about sight, marriage and freezing dead birds
Blake Lively exists in a strange stratosphere of movie stardom where the oddly left-of-center movies she makes seem to only exist in their own realm, in their own genre. They're not thrillers, they're not dramas, they're Blake Lively Movies.
‘All I See’ is a surreal vision of a disturbing world
Fittingly for a suspenseful fable about blindness, vision and illusions, the central focus of All I See Is You is the proverbial evil eye. Not the sort youd find on a cyclops or witch, but the type that many share, the injurious one that observes what it wants, ignoring a great deal that causes unease.
Writer/director Marc Forster (Monsters Ball, Quantum of Solace, World War Z) does flawed but fascinating work in this tense, twisty, sexual and psychological puzzle.

SAIL ON: If “Chappaquiddick” star Jason Clarke were a Method actor, he might have drawn mightily on a previous encounter with the late Sen. Ted Kennedy, whom he portrays in the movie about the fatal car accident that killed staffer Mary Jo Kopechne in 1969. In an interview with Variety at the Toronto Film Festival, as the Aussie actor was chatting about getting the accent right and Kennedy’s “particular tonal range,” he let drop that he’d spent a day with Ted K. on his boat years ago, off Rhode Island. “He had a beautiful boat, and he loved sailing,” Clarke recalled. “I still remember the day very clearly. It was beautiful.”
