Hollywood is re-writing history to suit a leftist agenda; nothing new here.
Sam Taylor-Johnson, who directed Fifty Shades of Grey, is in talks to direct Apex Entertainment’s feature Chappaquiddick. Written by Taylor Allen and Andrew Logan, Chappaquiddick is political thriller that unveils the true story of what is described as the seven most dramatic days of Senator Ted Kennedy’s life. “You’ll see what he had to go through.”
What *he* had to go through? Seriously? This is like when they made a movie about Che Guevara and left out the mass murder and racism.
I suppose you could make an interesting movie about Chappaquiddick. It would be the story of a rich man’s privileged life, one where the death of a “little person” counts for nothing compared with his political ambitions. It would be the story of a political machine whose brain trust didn’t even include Ted–considered by them to be an idiot–in the meeting where they planned a strategy to deal with his vehicular homicide. It would be a story of political corruption and of a debased electorate whose weird devotion to the Kennedys prevented Ted from paying even a minimal price for his fatal cowardice.
