Yes, people should know about that, even though it occurred before many were born. A certain side of the political aisle still brings it up, many years after Teddy's death, in order to deflect current incidents of their leaders moral turpitude.

Seems to be plenty of moral turpitude in the trailer. Bruce Dern as Joe Kennedy is enticing.

I do wonder how the hell this movie ever got made.

It's just another Flanders troll. Even the predictive text on my phone knew. I hardly had to type anything!

Imagine if there was a Chappaquiddick and Benghazi double feature!

I yawned at first and then had the thought that if this gets even a little bit of interest, and it turns out they actually tried to keep to the historically accurate side of things, it could strengthen the "recent political scandal docudrama" market. And there are a few others that might be interesting on the screen.

I also found it interesting to see that it happened during the Apollo 11 mission, two days before the moon landing. I wonder if they'll talk about it in the movie.

Unlikely. "13 Hours" is a different genre.

After people see this movie there's no way they'll ever vote for Ted Kennedy again!
