The Senator

The Senator

An engrossing and captivating political thriller, inspired by true events. The curse of family legacy and a web of lies that altered the course of US political history…
On July 18, 1969, Sen. Ted Kennedy (Jason Clarke: Everest) drives his car off of a bridge on Massachusetts’ Chappaquiddick Island. The accident results in the death of passenger Mary Jo Kopechne, (Kate Mara: House of Cards) a 28-year-old campaign strategist who worked for the Kennedys. The ongoing investigation into the mysterious and scandalous events forever alters his political legacy — and ultimately changes the course of presidential history.

The Senator is an enthralling tale of political zeitgeist and will ensure this chapter won’t just be left to the history books. Also starring Academy Award© nominee and screen legend Bruce Dern (Nebraska; Django Unchained), Ed Helms (The Hangover) and Olivia Thirlby (Juno)
