Emilio Estevez (yes, that Emelio Estevez) has written and directed an intimate, thought-provoking look at the day Robert F. Kennedy was assassinated. The film takes place at the infamous Ambassador Hotel. By focussing less on the man at the center of it all (who appears only in news footage) and more on the people around him, Estevez has created a Grand Hotel-style snapshot of the late-60s. Among the hotel staff, guests, political activists and Democratic delegates are William H. Macy, Laurence Fishburne, Sharon Stone, Lindsay Lohan, Shia La Beouf, Anthony Hopkins and Demi Moore. It's an impressive ensemble that manages to catch at least a sliver of the hope, worry and dashed expectations of that fateful day. 120 minutes R.
