Adaptations: Chappaquiddick / Mechelle

Our month of adaptations begins with the historical drama, Chappaquiddick (Dir. John Curran). Starring Jason Clarke, Ed Helms, Jim Gaffigan and Bruce Dern, Chappaquiddick seems like it should have enough pedigree talent to carry the tale of an American politician done wrong right across the finish line. So, why do both Naomi and Jesse feel that it came up short? After they discuss the marks the film missed (and those it hit), the two then discuss the possibilities of the film Mechelle, an adaptation of a pivotal Supreme Court case. Do we get into politics and government on Something… Anything Else? Well, you’ll just have to listen to find out!
