Physical Media: Blu-ray Review
While Chappaquiddick doesn’t give new details about the events of that night it does portray Kennedy as a complex man. On the one hand, we see the somewhat ruthless politician willing to bend rules if necessary while on the other we see the little boy inside desperate for a father’s love.
