Emilio Estevez's homage to Kennedy includes Hopkins and Sheen

Bobby

Emilio Estevez’ writing/directing labour of love – a homage to Bobby Kennedy – is undoubtedly well-intentioned, and boasts a fine ensemble cast (Anthony Hopkins, Martin Sheen, Demi Moore and Sharon Stone).

In aiming for an Altmanesque web of inter-weaving characters he just takes on too much, and cracks show before the climactic tragedy. Yet there’s much to admire here, not least Demi’s drunken diva fits.

EXTRAS: 4*
