Bobby is a fictionalised account of various people whose lives intersect
in the hours leading up to and including the assassination of Senator
Robert. F. Kennedy at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles.
The film is a journey of the heart that examines the relationships between
men and women, between races and the social divisions that have clipped
away the foundation of our humanity. We are given a glimpse into how life
can be drastically changed in a moment in time, an indelible event in
our nation's history. The characters are ordinary American's who find
themselves at the epicentre of one of the most important incidents of
the 20th Century.
Bobby is not a political story, though politics are certainly an undercurrent.
It is not the story of Bobby Kennedy (seen solely in newsreel footage).
Rather, it is the story of all of us.
Bobby is seen through the eyes of twenty-two characters. The hope, excitement
and notion that a change is in the air, which Kennedy ignited in us
all, black and white, rich and poor, young and old was extinguished
that evening in June. From young men in their late teens to early twenties,
facing the possibility of shipping off to Vietnam, to the retired doorman
of the Ambassador, who has greeted the likes of every U.S. President
from FDR to Johnson. From the hotel staff to the guests whom occupy
the suites, to the "Youth of Kennedy Volunteers", all ages
and genders are represented in screenplay
