The story of the assassination of U.S. Senator Robert F. Kennedy, on June 6th, 1968, which centers around 22 people who were at the Ambassador Hotel where he was killed. The film stars Harry Belafonte as Nelson, Joy Bryant as Patricia, Nick Cannon as Dwayne, Emilio Estevez as Tim Fallon, Laurence Fishburne as Edward Robinson, Brian Geraghty as Cooper, Heather Graham as Angela and Anthony Hopkins as John Casey. We went to see it this past week and it is very powerful movie that concentrates on the 20 people in and around the Ambassador Hotel the day Robert Kennedy was shot there. All the characters are well developed and sensitively played by a fantastic and superb cast. We highly recommend this movie and on a scale from 1 to 5, give it a 5. Great, great movie!
TIM robbins is so young and handsome in this GREAT movie. Robbins plays a banker in jail on a murder charge. He believe he was also nominated for an academy award. Extra points for Tim!

PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A LEADING ROLE - Helen Mirren I feel Oscar performance for Helen Mirren on her portrayal of the Queen as Princess Diana's distant mother-in-law. Following Diana's shocking death on August 30, 1997, the Queen seemed strikingly out of touch with her people and prime minister, Tony Blair. She retreated to Balmoral, Scotland, unwilling to shed a public tear over the death of her former daugher-in-law. Mirren herself has asked that question: 'Does it hurt her to show a little emotion? Isn't that what she's there for?' The movie is a very good and intimate reflection of the battle between private and public, responsibility and emotion, rituals and action as a grieving nation waits to see what its leaders will do. Absolutely recommend!!
