Kate will be attending TIFF 2017

Hey guys! Just a quick follow-up on the news we shared last week about My Days of Mercy and Chappaquiddick (Can anyone type this title without looking it up? Seriously) – it has now been confirmed that Kate will be attending Toronto International Film Festival this year! We don’t know if she’s going to the premieres of both films, but it seems highly likely. Along with the list of confirmed artists, TIFF has also released its complete lineup, which includes some information about each film. You can read more about Kate’s below.

Chappaquiddick
USA / 107 minutes / 2017 / STC / Colour / English / World Premiere

This suspenseful historical drama examines the infamous 1969 incident when Senator Ted Kennedy (Jason Clarke) accidentally drove off a bridge, resulting in the death of campaign worker Mary Jo Kopechne (Kate Mara).

Among the most morally murky episodes in late-20th-century US politics — and that’s a crowded field — was the drowning of campaign specialist Mary Jo Kopechne in what would become known as the Chappaquiddick Incident. Kopechne was trapped in a car that Senator Ted Kennedy drove off a bridge on Chappaquiddick Island, Massachusetts, following a night of festivities. This sombre, suspenseful recreation of the accident and its aftermath, directed by John Curran (TIFF 2013’s Tracks), invites us to speculate on how this shameful scandal came to be.

The Kennedy dynasty had lost three heirs apparent by 1969, and Ted (Jason Clarke) was, at the time, the family’s last hope to carry their name and ambitions into the upper echelons of US politics. Kennedy patriarch Joe (Bruce Dern), however, always considered his youngest son a ne’er-do-well — and he never let Ted forget it. The party on Chappaquiddick reunited the “Boiler Room Girls” who had served on Robert Kennedy’s 1968 presidential campaign, among them Mary Jo (Kate Mara). Ted whisks Mary Jo away for a reckless moonlight drive that ends in tragedy. But the more profound malfeasance begins after the drowning — itself dramatized here in harrowing detail — when a battalion of spin doctors gets to work on covering up the incident, using the Apollo 11 moon landing as a distraction.

What makes Chappaquiddick such a brilliant historical drama is the way Curran and company focus on moment-by-moment choices instead of suggesting some overarching conspiracy. This is an unsettling film about the way power strives to protect itself while bystanders are left by the wayside.

Kate Visits Popcorn With Peter Travers

Kate was on Popcorn With Peter Travers this week to promote Megan Leavey! Before the interview even began, Peter stated that this is the performance of Kate’s career, to which she hilariously replied “This is actually the perfect review, I will leave”. Kate explains that many aspects of the script attacted her to the project, like the fact that the story was about a female in the military, which is specially rare. The beginning of Megan’s journey sounded relatable to her, seeing as “she didn’t really know what to do with her life. […] Everyone can relate to that”. She describes Megan, her character, as a “kind of weak human who finds her voice, and finds her strength through joining the Marine Corp and also through finding that she’s really quite gifted at dog handling and forming this bond with this incredible canine Marine”. The video is about 20 minutes long, so they talk a lot more about the film. In my humble opinion, it is definitely worth the watch.
