This image released by Home entertainment Studios shows Jason Clarke as Ted Kennedy, left, and Kate Mara as Mary Jo Kopechne in a scene from “Chappaquiddick.”

Tuesday, April 3, 2018|12:39 p.m.

LOS ANGELES– Jason Clarke plunged into freezing waters, consistently, for his role as the late Sen. Ted Kennedy in “Chappaquiddick.”

The Australian star stated his research about the mishap that thwarted Kennedy’s presidential opportunities consisted of jumping into Poucha Pond, the same waters the Massachusetts Democrat’s vehicle crashed into in July 1969, killing Mary Jo Kopechne.

Clarke said the indie movie, which is in minimal release on Friday, does not aim to sensationalize the mishap, which Kennedy failed to report for 10 hours.

He stated the movie sticks “to the realities as much as we could and to play it out without scandalizing, without going to the tabloid of it.”

“This guy committed this act and he worked his way out of it with aid and with his own moral journey to the opposite, where he then became one of the longest-serving senators in history. I do not think– partisanship aside– you can’t take away from exactly what he did.”

Kennedy went to Martha’s Vineyard to race in the Edgartown Regatta and on the night of July 18, 1969, participated in a celebration at a leased house on Chappaquiddick Island. Guests consisted of Kennedy buddies and numerous ladies, including Kopechne, who had worked on the governmental project of his brother Robert F. Kennedy, assassinated a year previously.

Kennedy and Kopechne, 28, left the celebration together and a short time later their cars and truck plunged into Poucha Pond. Kennedy escaped from the submerged lorry and said he made several futile efforts to save Kopechne, who was caught inside.

Kennedy, who died in 2009, later on described his failure to report the incident to cops for 10 hours as “indefensible.”

Clarke visited the bridge and pond as part of his research study for the film, even leaping in.

“It’s pretty much unchanged apart from the bridge itself has got guard rails and larger. There’s no other buildings. The Dike House is still there, the very same location. It’s dark. There’s no lights on the roadway,” he stated. “The water is dark and the current is strong.”

“I believe I held my breath for five seconds to see where I came up. And I turned up a big range away,” Clarke stated.

Kennedy’s undersea escape was recreated in the waters of the Pacific Ocean off Mexico. Clarke said the scene was difficult to shoot not only since of the ocean’s cold water, but also since he had to get out of the vehicle while upside down.

The film, an Entertainment Studios release, invests more time on the aftermath of the mishap. Clarke said viewers must leave theaters with a greater understanding of Kennedy.

“You can be with Ted a bit. You can not just externalize it and say bad, horrible, disgusting man. You might want to at the end, but you can be there for it: on the phone afterwards, the walk back, the swim, the lies, the fabricated story– or perhaps it’s in fact really exactly what did take place. However you can in fact remain there with Ted. Not enough to be a Kennedy, but enough to almost touch him,” he stated.

Jim Gaffigan, who plays attorney Paul Markham, one of the co-hosts of the party that Kennedy and Kopechne left together, agreed.

“All of us have earlier variations of ourselves that we’re not insane about. At least I do,” he stated. “So there is something really intriguing about the journey that Ted goes through, and being exposed to his relationship with his daddy,” he stated. “Look, it’s not a documentary, however there is an effort to be objective and ask objective questions.”
