Still shot from the movie: Bobby.

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. »

How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

The creator of this film, Emilio Estevez, has chosen to surround an actual historical figure with an assortment of fictional stories. What artistic liberties does this approach provide as compared to doing a biographical movie on the life of Robert F. Kennedy? How may it allow a writer to change the perspective—either positively or negatively—in which the real-life character is presented?

How might the use of actual footage of Senator Kennedy affect our impressions about the reality of the other characters presented in this film?
