Watched Bobby last night. Directed by former 80's "brat pack" member Emilio Estevez, 'Bobby' is a movie about the man, Robert F. Kennedy, and how his dreams and visions inspired a nation and gave wonderous hope to all Americans. Featuring a cast full of huge stars, the story follows multiple characters and their involvement on that fateful day and place, June 6th, 1968 at L.A.'s Ambassador Hotel. Laurence Fishburne is exceptionally good in his role, as is Joshua Jackson. Ashton Kuchar provides some comic relief, as does the young tandem of Shia LaBeouf and Brian Geraghty. [A full day of LSD adventures! LOL!] Not quite sure why it didn't recieve more praise or accolades, but this is one of the best films I've seen over the last year.
Two thumbs up!
