    Chappaquiddick

    ★★★½

    I didn't love this but it is the type of film that definitely hits my pleasure points. I love a good political thriller and this is one whose story I was only vaguely familiar with which made it pretty interesting. It is also a well crafted film and stars Jason Clarke.

The first time I saw it I thought it could be good, then came the next dozen times. I heard the "Sci-fi Groundhog Day" talk and I was about as disinterested as I could get. Thankfully the tomato meter and some twitter buzz brought me back around. I was able…
