Still shot from the movie: Bobby.


Bobby is about the eventful day of June 6, 1968, when a young Palestinian man shot U.S. Senator Robert F. Kennedy at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles. While the assassination is fact, everything else in the movie is pure Hollywood fantasy intended to give the viewer a glimpse of the political climate of the time. Get the movie review and more. »
