Plot Summary

"Bobby" re-imagines one of the most explosively tragic nights in American history. By following the stories of 22 fictional characters in the Ambassador Hotel on the fateful eve that Presidential hopeful Senator Robert F. Kennedy was shot, writer/director Emilio Estevez and an accomplished ensemble cast forge an intimate mosaic of an America careening towards a moment of shattering change – as different characters navigate prejudice, injustice, chaos and their own complicated personal lives, while seeking the last glimmering signs of hope in Kennedy’s idealism. In exploring the diverse experiences of ordinary people, the film celebrates the spirit of an extraordinary man and servers as a snapshot of this emblematic time in history.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Ham-handed and TV-movie flat, it states the obvious, then states it again and again and again. – Ty Burr, Boston Globe, Dec 29, 2006

Rotten: For all his good intentions, Mr. Estevez has reduced history to a bad melodrama in which nothing much happens until a crazed assassin (of whom we catch only a fleeting prior glimpse) supposedly destroys the last great hope of a liberal renaissance. – Andrew Sarris, New York Observer, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Ambitious, uneven and deeply affecting drama. – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, May 7, 2009

Fresh: So keenly felt and so deeply imagined I couldn't help but be moved, even grateful for its bleeding-heart nostalgia -- which winds up feeling rather up-to-date. – Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader, Jun 24, 2010

Powerful Movie

Great political drama. Funny in some parts too...not just some melodramatic snooze-fest like most of the atrocities foisted off as movies nowadays. This movie actually has energy. Great soundtrack laced with some of the best '60s music money can buy.
