On the plane back from Washington I watched the movie BOBBY, which I assumed would be the life story of Bobby Kennedy. It turned out to be more like an episode of Hotel Babylon. I half thought Tamzin Outhwaite would glide into the hotel reception at any moment. The whole film was actually about Bobby K's last day, or rather the life of the hotel on that last day.
The film certainly wasn't short of star names. Emilio Estevez even had his father Martin Sheen in a minor role. But the only actor to cover himself in glory was Federico from SIX FEET UNDER (don't know his real name).
The mix of real footage and fiction was smooth from a production viewpoint but didn't really work for the audience until the climactic assassination scene.
Now I'm waiting for Hollywood to make REAGAN. I suspect I might have a long wait.
