Emilio Estevez
USA 2006
118 min

Viewing the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy through the eyes of guests and staff in the hotel where the senator was shot on June 5, 1968, Emilio Estevez's Bobby is a passionate outcry for peace and justice in America that becomes deeply involving by the final climactic scene, overlaid with one of RFK's most stirring speeches. Stepping up as writer and director in a way he never has before, Estevez successfully pulls together a complexly designed narrative intertwining newsreel footage of RFK with mini-stories about 22 fictional characters. Each story reflects on the zeitgeist of the 60ies, including its films and pop culture, racial and class tensions and the Vietnam War. Though Estevez's script predates 9/11, it carries an eerie topicality that makes many of its insights instantly click. (Deborah Young)
