One of the most celebrated war correspondents of our time, Marie Colvin is an utterly fearless and rebellious spirit, driven to the frontline of conflicts across the globe to give voice to the voiceless.

An investigative documentary about Senator Edward Kennedy's involvement in the fatal 1969 car crash that resulted in the death of Mary Jo Kopechne...and destroyed Kennedy's chances of running for the Presidency.
The scandal and mysterious events surrounding the tragic drowning of a young woman, as Ted Kennedy drove his car off the infamous bridge, are revealed in the new movie starring Jason Clarke as Ted Kennedy and Kate Mara as Mary Jo Kopechne. Not only did this event take the life of an aspiring political strategist and Kennedy insider, but it ultimately changed the course of presidential history forever. Through true accounts, documented in the inquest from the investigation in 1969, director John Curran and writers Andrew Logan and Taylor Allen, intimately expose the broad reach of political power, the influence of America's most celebrated family; and the vulnerability of Ted Kennedy, the youngest son, in the shadow of his family legacy.
The 'father' and 'son' that find the car in the water the morning after the crash are actually father and son in real life and were chosen from a photo of the father fishing with his son. They shot in Chappaquiddick, Ipswich, MA and Rosarito, Mexico. See more »
Ted asks the operator to make a collect call and gives his name, but never gives a phone number. The operator patches the call without it. By the late 1960s, pay phones allowed callers to directly dial a collect call by dialing a 0 rather than a 1 before the area code and phone number, and then telling the operator who picked up that it was a collect call and giving the operator his/her name.

Should be required viewing in every high school
Ted Kennedy and his memory even today is idolized by various women's groups. This movie shows the truth for those of us who remember his abandonment of Mary Jo and let her die a slow, agonizing death in the car he crashed. And then his contradictory stories in the cover up. The powerful family even reached into the court system to block exhumation of Mary Jo's body, thus helping the extensive coverup. This is a real story about real people and until this movie, the media protected Teddy and his powerful family. More people should see this, the truth should be out there. And Ted Kennedy should not be idolized. He should have faced a jury on manslaughter charges.
