50 Most Memorable Helen Hunt Movies Ranked From Worst To Best

In the hours leading up to the assassination of U.S. Senator Robert F. Kennedy, the Ambassador Hotel is packed with people preparing for Kennedy’s speech or just living their lives. There are campaign donors (Helen Hunt, Martin Sheen), a couple getting married (Lindsay Lohan, Elijah Wood), a singer (Demi Moore) and her management team (Emilio Estevez, David Krumholtz), the doorman ( Anthony Hopkins), and his chess player friend (Harry Belafonte), campaign volunteers (Brian Geraghty, Shia LaBeouf) and their drug dealer (Ashton Kutcher), hotel employees (Sharon Stone, William H Macy, Heather Graham, Christian Slater, Laurence Fishburne, Freddy Rodriguez, Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and campaign staff (Joshua Jackson, Nick Cannon). Their stories and many others intertwine on this fateful night.

Written and directed by Emilio Estevez, 2006’s “Bobby” is an ambitious film that doesn’t quite make it juggling its multiple storylines, but is nonetheless a worthy attempt to show the sentiments of the time and how they are still relevant in the more modern age. In addition to the cast of fictional characters, the film also incorporates real footage of Robert F. Kennedy to terrific effect.

Although a bit muddled, “Bobby” is filled to the brim with incredible talent and passionate energy.
