Title: The "Bobby" thread
Post by: Sabine on August 31, 2005, 05:05:38 am

The plot sounds interesting - Robert Kennedy was a fascinating person and building a movie around his last hours, the Ambassador hotel and the (imaginary) characters could work very well.

And it would be the first time Lijah plays a husband.....

Elijah Wood Meets 'Bobby'

By Brad Brevet
Source: RopeofSilicon | August 30, 2005


Back on August 25th, The Hollywood Reporter let us all know that Emilio Estevez was not done with the film world as his passion project, Bobby, was not going to be abandoned. The article let us know that Estevez had Anthony Hopkins and Demi Moore lined up for his feature on Robert F. Kennedy and now a bit more casting has fallen into our lap.

While doing his press tour for Everything is Illuminated I had a chance to sit down for about an hour with Elijah Wood here in Seattle and believe it or not there was more to talk about than Starbucks coffee. While I am still putting together the rest of the interview, which will cover everything from Illuminated to Elijah's passion for music I felt this tidbit was too good to wait.

Wood told me that he is up for a part in Estevez's Bobby and went rather in-depth with the storyline, check out what he had to say below, but be warned there are a few spoilers as far as storyline goes, nothing major, but I would hate for anyone to be upset by it.

WARNING: SPOILERS!

[color=Maroon][quote]Elijah: There's a couple of things kinda on the horizon, nothing's properly set up yet.

Q: Anything you can talk about?

There may be a music biography coming up, something that scares the shit out of me. It's someone I am extremely passionate about, and yeah... That's coming up, but that's way in the future. [Iggy Pop?]

There's actually a movie that I am pretty sure will happen called Bobby, it's kind of just starting. Emilio Estevez wrote a script based on the day that Bobby Kennedy was shot at the Ambassador Hotel and it's basically this really fantastic ensemble cross-section of people from all walks of life at the Ambassador Hotel on the day that he comes to give his speech and was shot, just a fantastic script. Great homage to the hotel, to that time and obviously to that man and kind of what happens to these characters as a result of that happening, and it ends with his speech, it's really extraordinary.

Q: Did Emilio approach you for this role specifically?

Elijah: Yeah.

Q: What will your role in the film be?

Elijah: Well, it's a man who is marrying a woman who is actually in love with his brother, but he is marrying this woman just so that he can avoid the draft during Vietnam and he ends up falling in love with her, and they end up falling in love with each other.

It's like a tiny little snippet of life, I mean all of these stories don't really relate to a greater picture, it's just these snippets of life at that time in America, in the Ambassador Hotel.

Q: And the script is just phenomenal?

Elijah: It's really, really excellent. It's an ambitious script, I mean it's a huge cross-section, it goes down to the wait staff and what's going on with them, and he gets it from all sort of classes, it's really interesting. The people that manage the hotel and what they're going through leading up to this speech, and then he gives the speech and was shot and then the aftermath and it ends with the speech kind of trailing off.

And it's really interesting because the speech is incredibly poignant for today's world, extremely relevant, I mean it was relevant than, there was obviously social and political strife then too. It was during Vietnam, coming out of the Civil Rights Movement and it was like two or three days previous that Martin Luther King had been shot, but the speech definitely echoes a lot of that, and it is all about us as Americans and as people across the world who need to stand together and to unite our visions and we can overcome this stage.

I mean, I was reading that speech and I was like... f*ck, we need to hear this kinda shit now! So, I actually think it could be a really important film to illuminate an American perspective and an American ideal that doesn't really exist anymore... very interesting. [/quote] [/color]

As for the speech itself, I have scoured Google looking for it and all I can find is that it was a "rousing victory speech," which doesn't help us much, if someone has it or knows where I can find it to share with our readers please shoot me an email.

Any history buffs out there who can help this guy out?


Not the first time, Sabine. Remember Ash Wednesday? ...and he did get married in Deep Impact. ;)

Oh, I hope this project does go forward. Sounds like a great role. It also sounds as though he'll finally have some serious love scenes, too. Wonder who'll play his love interest.

With this and the Iggy Pop role he's landed ( http://www.contactmusic.com/new/xmlfeed.nsf/mndwebpages/elijah%20lands%20iggy%20pop%20role ) it looks as if 2006 will be an interesting year.

Title: Elijah Wood Joins Emilio Estevez's Robert Kennedy Project
Post by: blueangel21 on September 01, 2005, 12:40:47 am

08.31.2005 9:03 PM EDT

Elijah Wood Joins Emilio Estevez's Robert Kennedy Project
'Lord of the Rings' actor to star alongside Anthony Hopkins, possibly Demi Moore in 'Bobby.'


Elijah Wood's trademark blue eyes have glimpsed the wonders of Middle Earth (the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy), the destructive power of the universe ("Deep Impact") and the graphic manifestation of a comic book come to life ("Sin City"). Next he'll be focusing them on one of the most tragically memorable events in the history of U.S. politics.

"It's a film called 'Bobby,' " Wood revealed of the project. "It's about the day that Robert Kennedy was shot at the Ambassador Hotel, and it takes place at the Ambassador. It's essentially about a cross-section of various people from all walks of life, at that hotel on that day, all leading up to his speech and him being assassinated."

The former Frodo Baggins will join the previously cast Anthony Hopkins and possibly Demi Moore, who's in negotiations. With writer/director/star Emilio Estevez hoping to shoot the film before the historic Los Angeles hotel is demolished later this year, production is expected to commence on location at the beginning of October.

Much along the lines of historical blockbuster "Titanic," Estevez's passion project portrays a collection of fictionalized characters whose lives intersect during one of the most shocking events of the 20th century. U.S. Senator Kennedy, who was assassinated in 1968 a mere five years after his brother, was largely considered to be the frontrunner for the presidency himself.

"I'll play a character who is getting married to a woman to avoid the draft," Wood said of his part, adding that his character will portray one of 22 people present that night at the Ambassador. "Ultimately they fall in love with each other, but at first it's only out of practicality."

Hopkins is slated to play the hotel's doorman, while Moore is considering the role of a lounge singer. More casting announcements are anticipated over the next several weeks.

The 24-year-old Wood will also be seen this fall in the dramas "Everything Is Illuminated" and "Green Street Hooligans."

Emilio Estevez's "Bobby" is Gearing Up

Aug 26 2005

Demi Moore May Join Anthony Hopkins in "Bobby"
Emilio Estevez is no longer alone with "Bobby." Anthony Hopkins has been cast as a hotel doorman and Demi Moore (a fellow '80s bratpack member of Estevez's) is in talks to play a lounge singer in the film which examines the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy.
Estevez recently told The Hollywood Reporter, "The film is about being at critical mass -- critical mass in relationships or between race, and the hotel and the characters under its roof serve as a microcosm for what was happening in the country during that time."

"Bobby" will focus the hours leading up to Robert F Kennedy's assassination at the Los Angeles Ambassador Hotel on June 4th, 1968. Estevez wrote the script and will direct, produce, and co-star in the film.

Filming is expected to begin in October 2005.

Still more news...

Anthony Hopkins, Demi Moore targeting Kennedy
Thu Aug 25, 5:28 AM ET

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Anthony Hopkins is set to star in "Bobby," Emilio Estevez's passion project about the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy. Demi Moore is in negotiations to join the cast.

Part fact and part fiction, the ensemble film chronicles the intertwining lives of a grand cast of characters, all of whom are present at Los Angeles' Ambassador Hotel in the hours leading up to Kennedy's assassination. Hopkins will be the hotel's doorman, and Moore will portray a lounge singer.

The movie hopes to touch upon racial stereotypes, class differences and sexual inequality in its story lines.

"My intention with 'Bobby' is not to make a political picture, although the 1968 California primary figures prominently in the story," Estevez said. "The film is about being at critical mass -- critical mass in relationships or between race, and the hotel and the characters under its roof serve as a microcosm for what was happening in the country during that time. The entire country was experiencing critical mass. Culturally, we all unraveled after that tragic night on June 5. And now, 37 years later, our country has reached critical mass once again."

An October 25 start date is being eyed, with a budget of less than $10 million.

With the real Ambassador now closed for demolition, the production hopes to re-create the historic hotel on soundstages and possibly use the Biltmore Hotel as a location.

The castings see Hopkins reuniting with Estevez, with whom he worked on 1992's "Freejack." Moore and Estevez, longtime friends and members of the '80s Brat Pack, acted together in 1985's "St. Elmo's Fire" and 1986's "Wisdom." Estevez wrote and directed the latter.

Yet another tidbit...

Elijah Wood is joining Anthony Hopkins and Demi Moore in the cast of Bobby, about the night Robert F Kennedy was shot dead at the Los Angeles Ambassador Hotel in 1968. The Lord of the Rings actor will play a young man who falls in love, Hopkins the hotel's porter, while Moore will be a dancer. Bobby is written and directed by brat-packer Emilio Estevez. Producers hope to begin filming before the hotel is torn down at the end of the year.

[color=Blue]From MTV Movie News:

Excerpt:[/color]

"I was in North London, I remember, doing a play, and the news came
through that Robert Kennedy had been assassinated. I thought, 'The
world has completely gone insane.' " After nearly 40 years of living
with that painful memory, Oscar winner Anthony Hopkins is preparing
to relive the day the U.S. senator and possible future president was
murdered in Emilio Estevez's upcoming film, "Bobby." "It's a good
script ... and it takes place at the Ambassador Hotel," the former
Hannibal Lecter recounted of the film, which co-stars Elijah Wood and
is due to begin filming soon. "I play an ex-doorman, a man who
actually lived, named John Casey. I'm sort of the Lewis Stone part
from 'Grand Hotel'; [I witness] all the lives of other people and
their intrigues and their domestic lives. One of the characters
says, 'Everyone always comes here, but nothing ever happens,' and
that night, Bobby Kennedy is assassinated in the kitchen of the
Ambassador." Hopkins said he will also act as executive producer.

More about "BOBBY" and Elijah's character:


Wood's character is marrying a girl to change his draft classification. Cannon is a Youth for Kennedy volunteer, and Rodriguez is a hotel busboy.

Ten more major roles need to be filled, but after 4-1/2 years, Estevez is 2-1/2 weeks away from the first day of principal photography. The budget is less than $10 million.

As much as it is a blessing for me, because he's choosing such varied and interesting roles, it's also a curse, because what's the point if we can't actually see the movies (in the cinema; and for some like Bumblebee we had to get the DVD from the States)? :-\[/color]

That would make sense. Other films with large casts have been done that way.

No way to know at this point what Emilio has in mind, but this would certainly be one way to do it.

I agree that sounds really good. It has an interesting historical potential and perspective.

Also, I'd like to see how Elijah gets with this. Obviously, getting married to avoid the draft, they must be some little moments involving the crisis involved. When I heard about it, I thought about some girl he knew that had loved him all his life that he knew would marry him that he, at first, minght have a certain amount of contempt for. Did anyone see Muriel's Wedding? Kinda like that...

He also played a husband, per se, in Deep Impact

Kennedy conspiracy theories continue
BY PHILIP POTEMPA
ppotempa@nwitimes.com
219.852.4327
Early criticism

Monday's column included an item about Emilio Estevez's new film project about the night Robert F. Kennedy was gunned down.

His movie "Bobby," which centers around the lives of people who were at the Ambassador Hotel at the time of the assassination, already has people, especially history researchers buzzing, and not about the all-star cast of Anthony Hopkins, Demi Moore and Elijah Wood.

I received an e-mail Tuesday from Jonn G. Christian, author of "Robert F. Kennedy: A Searching Look at The Conspiracy and Cover-up -- 1968-1978" (Thunder's Mouth Press, 1993).

"I've been following progress of 'Bobby' since its inception, some three years back, when he first proceeded to deride and ridicule anyone or anything that raised the numerous unresolved issues of conspiracy and cover-up," Christian wrote.

"If 'Bobby' tries to forward the often times melodramatic and purely exploitative twists and turns of Estevez's all-too-often immature imagination (e.g., ignoring issues placed in question), a grotesque charade will have been foisted off on a nation desperately seeking to resurrect democracy amidst the ruins of a rapidly approaching brutal totalitarian manifestation of nazi-fascism."

Ironically, Christian says one of his "more dedicated fans" is none other than Martin Sheen, Estevez's father.

I can't wait for this film. I onviously love ELijah. But this also satisfies my other interest: the assassinations of great men. I wonder if it will compare to the prequel though...

Primula_Baggins has an interesting "summary" of the facts we know about "Bobby" so far:

http://www.livejournal.com/users/primula_baggins/153271.html#cutid1

It is surprising that we do not even know who is playing Robert Kennedy.

I haven´t heard much of Emilio Estevez during the last years, so hopefully this will be a great comeback for him ... 8)

hey sabine. maybe you could change the name of this thread to "bobby" or something like it. i was serching to find a thread about this movie, and finally found it. :D

anyway, according to IMDb, elijah's character's name is william, and it's slated to come out august 2006.

here's the poster for the movie.

sorry it's so tiny, but if you look close enough, you'll see lij's name there.

hmm... i'm wondering if emilio is directing this like the movie JFK. some evidence is making it seem that way as stated on this thread.

we all know or at least have an idea of what happened that day with bobby kennedy, so he may be just a figure passing by or seen from a distance or from behind. we may not see the person playing bobby. emilio may mingle in real clips of bobby along with his own filming. this movie is focusing on other lives that went on during the assassination and the effect it had on them.

Whoa! Already a poster, and you can actually see Elijah's name on the front of it!! Woohoo!

But...I don't like the way that poster looks. As far as I've heard that was a terrible assassination of a great person, and they make it look like some dead guy in an Ocean's Eleven poster. Like it's cool or something. :-\ Not that I know anything about Emilio Estevez or what he has in mind as to where he's taking this movie... but I'll stop talking right now before I get stupid.

After this, that negative article and all the "bling bling" casting going on, I'll just hope stronger that this will be a good movie.

I haven't gotten the impression anyone really has "top billing" since this seems to be more of an ensemble movie than a star vehicle for any particular actor. However, the more well-known actors will surely be featured in the ads, because.....well because they're well-known. :D

i thought the same thing. elijah is definitely a veteran. 15 years and no less than 30 films. a hipster, in his own unique geeky way. a legend, thanks to LOTR. a pup because of his young age, and most of all, a pro. i've never heard one bad comment about elijah's work ethics and everyone says he's a true professional.

Lindsay Lohan ready to strip for an Oscar


Washington, Mar.14(ANI): Young actress Lindsay Lohan is apparently reticent to appear naked on screen, but admits she may abandon her 'no nudity' clause, if an award-winning role came along.

The Freaky Friday star, who accidently exposed one of her breasts at a recent Hollywood fashion show, has declared her price for going topless onscreen. The sexy actress has claimed that if an Oscar fetching role comes her way, she may bare her boobs. "I'm okay with being topless in front of people, but I'm not sure if I'd want to do it onscreen," Contactmusic quoted her, as telling the New York Daily News.

"If it's a role that's going to win me an Oscar, it would be different," she added.(ANI)

I think Lindsey is worthless. Nothing more to it. She will never deserve an Oscar in her life and especially not over a boob scene, I should hope not anyway. She needs to take a good look at her behavior and her attitude towards her work before she says anything that blasphemous about the Academy again.

I just spotted this.....but we already know about it from the posts above.

A dark-haired Lindsay Lohan graces the April cover of Cosmopolitan, and within its pages the singer/actress gets personal about family problems, body-image issues and guys. Lohan talks about her first onscreen love scene — with Elijah Wood in the upcoming "Bobby" — and says she hopes she'll have time for a real boyfriend....

I guess no one likes her very much, but it you want to read the whole article:

I think I'll wait to see her in Bobby before I comment on the girl. I just hope her love scene with Elijah is well done! :)

"We are excited to be working with Harvey and The Weinstein Company," said Litvak. "There's no one better at marketing and promoting, especially when it comes to a politically charged film."

Woohoo! This means W I D E distribution, so we should all get a chance to see it. ;D

Oh that's great. I hate it when I don't get to see Elijah's movies. :( Anyone have any idea on a rating? I hope it's not too high due to a loves scene.

I don't know, but I'll bet my bottom dollar it will have an R rating: Violence, language and hopefully sex scenes with Elijah.

great news about the distribution. if anyone can get it seen it's the weinsteins. i'm pretty sure it would be a "R" rating too.

i've been wondering about the actor who is going to play elijah's brother in this movie.

his name is kip pardue.

he was in the movie thirteen, and in an episode of 7th heaven.

Good choice for his brother. :) Definitely looks like they would have a blood relation, sort of like Zach.

Well, I wonder how much violence they're willing to show. I don't think they'd be able to show too much of Bobby's violence, since it might upset people watching it who witnessed the event watching TV or otherwise.

I'll never forget that day... Bobby Kennedy was senator of N.Y..... he was for the common people.. he came to my town in a motor cade and we got to see him.. then on that horrid hot day.. he was shot in the hotel.. They kept showing him sprawled on the floor and people screaming "not again.. not again" and Sirhan Sirhan was brought under arms by the people there... he was such a little slight man.. and there was Sen. Kennedy on the floor dying.. I cried and cried.. I wanted him for president. He would have won if he lived but that's a whole other story.. the fact that Martin Luther King and he died - I feel - was a concpiracy to bring about what is going on now.. but like I say.. it's a whole other story.. I was in shock and despair.. And totally in fear for our country then... as now....... that's all I have to say..
I lived that time and it was so very depressing. :(
Because the beautiful dream of a person we WANTED for president went with his death.

I think in some cases it's a difference of opinion. I believe he was killed for the same reason Martin Luther King and John F Kennedy were killed. They wanted to make the world a good place and certain people didn't want that to happen.

that's the thinking. i think it's from the movie. :)

If Senator Kennedy spotted the small, swarthy young man approach him at all, he would have figured he was just one of the many hotel personnel who wanted to shake his hand or beg an autograph. But as this comer neared, he leveled a gun in Kennedy’s direction and opened fire.

this is taken from a site about the events the night night bobby was assassinated.

When Bobby was our senator.. he came to the towns and spoke of educating.. but not with a homogenous test , no.. he wanted to teach the JOY of reading and education.. he wanted to have our young people physically fit and talked of how he would institute (what his brohter Jack had started) more hieghtened awareness of how physical education helped the mind.. yes.. he explained how social programs and the environment was his agenda.. he saw that a healthy environment also kept people healthy and not filled with drugs like we are today to only support big drug companies.. yes.. he was for the poeple and if you heard him like I did.. back then there was a politican that was for the PEOPLE.. not for the have and the have mores like today.. ( I'm sorry I'm not going to say anything more because I don't want this to get into a political discussion..) I have to admit.. his brother Jack did escalate the war in Vietnam so not everything he stood for , I did too.

Perhaps something similar to this has already been posted, but it lists the characters everyone plays.

Topliner Anthony Hopkins plays the hotel’s retired but ever-present doorman. Lindsay Lohan and Elijah Wood appear as a couple who get engaged so Wood’s character can avoid being sent to the front lines in the Vietnam War, an arrangement made by his Vietnam vet brother and her boyfriend (Kip Pardue). Sharon Stone plays a beautician married to the hotel’s manager (William H. Macy), who works alongside a chef (Laurence Fishburne), busboy (Freddy Rodriguez), phone operators (Heather Graham and Joy Bryant) and a food and beverage manager (Christian Slater). Helen Hunt and Martin Sheen portray married socialites staying at the hotel. Joshua Jackson plays a Kennedy volunteer, and Harry Belafonte rounds out the star ensemble as the ex-doorman’s retired friend. Estevez and Moore play a romantically linked pair of down-and-out entertainers.

Sharon Stone says keep an eye out come Oscar time!

well, i don't know if i should take her word for it, but sharon gives an interview about the movie.

"I wish there was an Oscar for extras, because these extras could get Oscars!" she gushed. "I'm not even joking, because the performances that the extras gave are so compelling and so rich and so deep. Because we're all together and because what happened was so profound, what they had to do was so big. Because of what was happening, their performances are so key. They're there in the kitchen when everyone comes running out, and they're there by the ambulance. It's such a tight thing, that what they did and what we all were together is a whole different thing than what we've seen or what I've seen in a movie. I don't know how to explain it, but the presence of what happened... It was such a privilege to be with everybody and there wasn't an extra that wasn't up to the level of every actor I just mentioned."

The quality is not very good but it looks like ELijah is listed on the top together with Anthony Hopkins, Demi Moore and Sharon Stone.

The poster looks a bit weird but interesting...


Has anyone information that the movie will definitly have the premiere in Cannes??


Ok I had a look on the official Cannes page. It is now updated and has the list of all movies. I could not find "Bobby" , I thought it should be shown on "The out of competition" section???

"Paris je t ´aime" will be shown under the section "Un certain regard" and is the opening film there.

cosmo: You had your first Love scene in Bobby, with Elijah Wood. Was that difficult to shoot?

Lindsay: No, it was great. He's so nice, and it was tastefuly done. There was no nudity. There were sheets over
me, but I didn't wear a bra becasue I hate when actresses do that in movies. no one would do that in real life.

So exciterd here for some new 'lij material

What he thinks of her? I think in his mind (and among friends) he probably uses that word he learned to use in excess on the LOTR set with the boys! It's the word I use for her! ;D However, publically, he'll be gracious, but knowing Elijah he may get a slight dig in. He's good at that.

I figured this would go here rather than in the Elijah thread (and I didn't see it there in any case...). *shrug*



From the April Cosmo
POSSIBLE SPOILER


cosmo: You had your first Love scene in Bobby, with Elijah Wood. Was that difficult to shoot?

Lindsay: No, it was great. He's so nice, and it was tastefuly done. There was no nudity. There were sheets over
me, but I didn't wear a bra becasue I hate when actresses do that in movies. no one would do that in real life.


hummmm....
[/quote]

I said long ago that I didn´t like this girl... and this silly comment explains itself why.
[/quote]

Which part? Oh, all of it?
I know...I am literally dying to find out what he really thinks of her. He is so sweet and she seems like the kind of person who would severely tax his patience on so many levels, poor thing...

BTW, I head Charlie Hunnam was in this also, at least IMDB said so, but they are not always helpful...

So exciterd here for some new 'lij material
[/quote]

What he thinks of her? I think in his mind (and among friends) he probably uses that word he learned to use in excess on the LOTR set with the boys! It's the word I use for her! ;D However, publically, he'll be gracious, but knowing Elijah he may get a slight dig in. He's good at that.
[/quote]

LMAO, I didn't think about his faorite word! Now, I can watch the movie and hear it in my head,..I'm sure people will think I'm nuts laughing during the movie...

My heavens, she bugs me. I just watched the Today interview and she has evil eyes. :o She could play in the remake of "The Exorcist". Poor Elijah, since he's a professional he could stomach her more than I can. I guess I'll wait until it's on cable before I force myself to watch it.

Yeah, to her credit, if I was working with Elijah, I'd probably want to go topless, too, and that's even if I was only the caterer!

The problem is, he is so sweet and gracious, he would never say anything if she bugged him at all, I really wish he would.

As to her toplessness...well, while I agree I'm sure, girlfriend present or not, it could not have been a big thrill to him, again, also because he is so sweet. I saw a few girls make him blush profusely during the ORC photo ops (you could see him blushing all the way to the back of the room!) But still...no harm in trying!

[color=Red]Hi there !

The first review of "Bobby" is online over at Ain't It Cool News (http://www.aintitcool.com/display.cgi?id=23661) , and it is generally a pretty positive review - with the exception of casting an over-critical eye upon Elijah's part :( :'(

Hope there will be other, more favourable reviews !

no, i actually like this new one better. with as many people in this, the only way to show who's in it is alphabetically, and that would put elijah's name right above the title.

get it? his name above the title? ;D

Title: Re:The "Bobby" thread
Post by: Blue Star on July 19, 2006, 01:19:15 pm

I like this poster a lot better. Looks more dramatic and more respectful to Bobby Kennedy. Looks like that's the official one. And Deenan's right- when you look at the title, his name is the first other thing you notice! ;D

Plus, it seems only fair to have the ensemble of other names to give a much better idea of what the movie is going to be like and how many people are actually in it. Not just four. ;)

Title: Re:The "Bobby" thread

I just read the ain't it cool review, and I am mad now at its composer!!! >:(

So he thinks that Elijah's performance was "wooden" with Lohan? I think we all know that Elijah can project powerfully using minimalism (somebody said it, not me), so when he is performing, it looks like a real life and not like "acting". In real life we don't overreact or something. This reviewer doesn't seem professional to me!!!

I'm so sure Elijah did a great job as usual and I can't wait for this movie! ::)

Well, I just prepared to read this with a grain of salt and read it, curious to know if this author sounded intelligent and well-knowing. It seems like he really was. And the movie sounds interesting. But I wouldn't call his criticism harsh. It didn't seem that harsh at all to me, it's not like he was acting like a troll or something. It seemed like a pretty logical criticism to me. So since he saw the movie and we haven't, maybe Elijah wasn't exactly his best in this movie.


I don't have much hope that there will be better reviews on his performance either. Just a feeling I have. I'm feeling overall glum and disappointed in Elijah the actor right now.

It sounds as if this movie is going to get a lot of positive publicity and I hope it raises Elijah's profile as a leading man. It'll be interesting to see if the press tries to link him with Lindsay Lohan when the release date draws near!

Do you have only a printer or a printer with a scanner on top? If you don't have a scanner of any sort to put it in then I'm afraid that can't help.

But thanks. If you do have a scanner on top, first of all, that would be great. :)

Because sex and image gets more attention than talent and substance. It's a sad fact in Hollywood.


But oh well, at this point the only thing I really care about is enjoying Elijah's movies. And I highly doubt that Elijah is jealous of the attention that Paris Hilton gets. Remember, he's not a celebrity. A celebrity is nothing but a ball of gas. ;)

Post by: magicdancer on August 21, 2006, 10:35:18 pm

Here's a rundown on all the parts played by the actors/actresses in this film.

BOBBY (2006)
Directed by Emilio Estevez
Starring Elijah Wood, Lindsay Lohan, Demi Moore, Anthony Hopkins &
William H. Macy

I have just seen one of the frontrunners of Oscar 2007 and it could
be the contemporary, American film that hits it out of the park with
critics and viewers. "Bobby" which tells the story of the
assassination of Robert Kennedy, the little brother of the late and
also assassinated President John F. Kennedy, and what was going on 16
hours before it happened. We are thrown back and forth between 22
characters stories and lives. Emilio Estevez, who wrote, directed,
and co-stars in the film has truly elevated his level of direction of
writing. This is the same man who wrote and directed hit and miss
films like "Men at Work" and "The War at Home." He parallels us
through a journey of injustice, racism, prejudice, adultery, and
more. This film much like "Crash" could be the multi-character film
that has the "Good Night, and Good Luck" touch that makes it to the
ceremony.

This film leads an all-star cast of some A-list and some B-list
actors.William H. Macy plays the manager of the famous Ambassador
Hotel (which theOscars were held at a few times) and Sharon Stone
plays his wife and hairdresser of the hotel. Heather Graham plays one
of switchboard operators who Macy is having an affair with. Demi Moore
plays Virginia Fallon, the alcoholic lounge singer who is set to
introduce the doomed candidate of the presidency. Estevez portrays
Moore's husband and manager being tormented inside by his wife's
addiction. Lindsay Lohan who as a step now to bring herself into more
serious roles, depicts Diane, a young bride to be, who is marrying her
boyfriend's brother to keep him from going to Vietnam.

Elijah Wood plays the future and very grateful husband. Freddy
Rodriguez known for his role in "Six Feet Under" and Jacob Vargas
known for his supporting rolesin "Traffic" and "Jarhead," play
Mexican kitchen staff members whom are working a double shift and are in search of equality. Laurence Fishburne is Edward Robinson, an
older black kitchen staff employee who is teaching his staff members
about offering more to life than anger. Joshua Jackson and Nick
Cannon are campaign managers for the infamous Bobby. Real life father of Emilio Estevez, Martin Sheen is Jack, a depressed older man who marries a younger woman portrayed brilliantly by Helen Hunt.

Christian Slater isTimmons the very racist kitchen staff manager who
is not subtle about his feelings towards minorities. And veterans Sir
Anthony Hopkins and HarryBelafonte are John Casey, the owner of the
hotel and Nelson, an old friend reminiscing of the old days in the
hotel. And at the end we have a little Ashton Kutcher, Shia LaBeouf,
and Mary Elizabeth Winstead.

The movie races against the clock to bring us into all these
characters lives and show us about America and where we've come from.
The film has it all, some comic relief coming from Kutcher, your
strong political message, the dramatic elements, and the emotional
punch that lays the icing on the cake. This is one of the most
important films of the year and if justice is served this will be on
many critics' top 10 lists of the year. I can't explain too much more
about the film without giving away vital parts but it speaks to
America. It shows where we've been and where we are now. The mention
of Dr. King and his impact on people fighting for equal rights
ismentioned quite of a bit. Bobby Kennedy was the light at the end of
the dark tunnel of America. People believed he was going to do some
amazing things for us and we might never know if he would have lived
up to those expectations but I am now very informed of his life and
legacy and how much he meant to so many individuals.

Oscar prospects are as follows: Emilio Estevez could very well be the
Paul Haggis of the year with his excellent writing and direction of
the film. I never would have thought he had it in him to pull of this
emotionally and politically charged film out of him. The performances
are amazing and mind blowing but with 22 different characters as
oppose to "Crash's" ten or twelve it's hard to pick a standout. I'd
place bets for Laurence Fishburne who has already received raves for
his "Akeelah and the Bee," Helen Hunt's haunting and powerful
performance very reminiscent of Julianne Moore's performance in "The
Hours", and if critics go crazy over it then we could see Harry
Belafonte as the veteran of the year to make it to the short list for
the first time. My favorite of the cast was by far Freddy Rodriguez
as Jose who brings a sense of humanity to his role which mirrors
Michael Pena's Daniel in "Crash." I wouldn't even be hesitant to say
Christian Slater was great as a racist who also mirrors Matt Dillon's
Oscar nominated performance in "Crash."

As you can see this is a more political "Crash" with a "Good Night, and
Good Luck" flavor with a side of "The Constant Gardener." This is my
number one film of the year thus far and I cannot wait to see the
final product because it was a pre-screening with some choppy editing
but all the other elements with Thomas Newman's powerful score
makes "Bobby" the most enjoyable and imperative film of the year.

I wonder if Elijah will attend this:

The 10th Annual Hollywood Film Festival, presented by STARZ, is proud to announce that this year's festival will honor the cast of "BOBBY" with the "Hollywood Ensemble Acting of the Year Award," isney's "PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MAN'S CHEST" with the "Hollywood Visual Effects of the Year Award," Disney/Pixar's "CARS" with the "Hollywood Animation of the Year Award," and 20th Century Fox's "X-MEN: THE LAST STAND" with the "Hollywood Make-Up of the Year Award."

The awards will be bestowed upon the honorees as part of the
Hollywood Awards Gala Ceremony on Monday evening, October 23
, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

For more information please go to http://www.hollywoodfestival.com

I read that the film will open in wide release November 23rd -- Thanksgiving Day in the US -- to take advantage of the 4-day holiday weekend. I call that smart planning. 8)

Title: Re:The "Bobby" thread
Post by: magicdancer on August 22, 2006, 12:48:34 am

Well, I'm glad it isn't opening on November 22nd, as was previously mentioned. I think it would have been totally tasteless to open on the anniversary of JFK's assassination. ::)

Here are some interesting comments from a woman who was an extra on the "Bobby" set:

He [Emilio] was really super nice. I had met with his researcher prior to the
shoot - had shared some footage to give them ideas re the hotel that
night, etc., and some other info, most of which they weren't going
to use. But they really appreciated the footage. I also had given the
researcher a copy of my book, signed to Emilio.

On the set, I saw him alone for a moment, about to make a call on a
cell phone. It's a big no no to go up to crew members and talk, but I'm
not looking to make a career as an extra and thought, what the heck. I
swooped over and introduced myself. To my great surprise and
pleasure, he recognized my name instantly and said hey, thanks for that great footage.

Later that day, he called me over to the monitors between
shots to show me some of his recreated footage that looked very real.
That was so nice of him! He called me by name on the set thereafter, talking
to me briefly in passing. One day, his father was singing between
takes the old song "Goodie Goodie", which he then reprised as James Cagney.
At the end, Emilio talked to him, and they look so identical when they're
together. I commented as Emilio squeezed past me "you two are so
cute together," and he replied, "He's a nut!"

At another moment, he was at a loss for someone to interact with
Nick Cannon in a non-verbal moment. Emilio was looking around and saying
"Interact with... interact with..." and I said "Me." Emilio looked
and saw me and said "Yes, talk to "xxxx."

It was an incredible experience. The people involved in the shoot
were really into what they were doing, as were the extras involved. To
have to hear over and over that Kennedy had died was sort of traumatic,
and yet cathartic, too. I loved Bobby Kennedy, and I really cried in
several takes. I have no idea if you'll see me in the film - I know I was on
camera several times, but I'll guess I'll be left on the cutting
room floor. We'll know in a couple more months.

Quote:
Veteran actor William H. Macy has blasted co-star Lindsay Lohan for her behavior while filming the movie Bobby, insisting she "should have her a** kicked." The star shared scenes with the 20-year-old actress in the film and admires her talent, but not her manners. He said, "You can't show up late. It's very, very disrespectful." Lohan was blasted in a letter last month from the Ceo of Morgan Creek Productions for her absences on set of her new film Georgia Rule, who called her behavior that of "a spoiled child." Lohan appears in the film alongside Macy's wife, Desperate Housewives star Felicity Huffman. He explains, "I think what an actor has to realize (is that) when you show up an hour late, 150 people have been scrambling to cover for you. It's nothing but disrespect. And Lindsay Lohan is not the only one. A lot of actors show up late as if they're God's gift to the film. It's inexcusable, and they should have their a**es kicked."

It’ll be interesting to see what he writes about Lindsay in his memoirs when he’s about 90.

Seriously, he is a veteran actor and must have learned some way of coping with unprofessional behavior in co-stars he’s encountered through the years. However, he was probably quite relieved when filming was over!

ok! finally! entertainment tonight will be showing bobby. starting next tuesday (9/5) they will be doing a segment every night over the rest of that week.

You’re right, the way they did the segment was unusual. They interspersed it with other stories but actually spent a lot of time on Bobby (mostly Emilio) and they finally mentioned Elijah by name in the 3rd or 4th one.

The screen caps aren’t too bad as they just didn’t show them long, I’m impressed you were able to make any. This all makes me feel excited about seeing the movie though.

There is an excellent thread near the top of the page in the Pictures section that explains how to post photos. That's how I learned. It's not really difficult. You do need an image server account first though....Photobucket, ImageShack, or Coppermine....and there are a couple others, too, I think.

On another note, I came across this less-than-favorable review of "Bobby" tonight. Also, there was a big article about the Toronto Film Festival in the latest "Entertainment Weekly" magazine and they never even mentioned "Bobby." What happened to all the Oscar buzz that was in the air a few weeks ago? ::) This reviewer doesn't seem to like most of the films shwon at the festival.

Toronto Film Festival foreshadows a season of movie misses
By Christopher Kelly Of The Fort Worth Star-Telegram

The skies have been overcast and the temperatures well below normal at the Toronto International Film Festival. Alas, the weather feels all too appropriate for an event that's having a hard time generating much heat. With few discoveries and even fewer surprises, the widespread feeling is one of disappointment. You can't stop asking yourself, ''Is that all there is?''

Take the case of Emilio Estevez's star-studded ''Bobby,'' one of the gala premieres, for which expectations were running very high. Created in the style of the Greta Garbo classic ''Grand Hotel,'' ''Bobby'' follows more than two dozen fictional characters as they wander through Los Angeles' Ambassador Hotel on the day of Robert F. Kennedy's assassination in 1968.

A number of lovely performances are on display, including Sharon Stone as a hairdresser with a cheating husband, Demi Moore as a drunken lounge singer and Shia LaBeouf as an acid-tripping campaign worker.

And the movie is nothing if not a deeply sincere attempt to remind contemporary viewers of Kennedy's idealism and hopefulness. But Estevez doesn't have the directorial flair a multicharacter movie like this requires. Mostly, ''Bobby'' plays like an overlong pilot for a TV series, introducing us to too many people and not giving any of them their due. As for the scenes featuring Ashton Kutcher as a hippie dope dealer and others featuring Lindsay Lohan as Elijah Wood's war bride — well, the less said about all that, the better.


The lack of momentum has resulted in some titles getting a disproportionate amount of attention; in the absence of any true ''event'' movies, critics and journalists tend to create their own events. That probably explains the mob scene outside the press screening for ''Death of a President'' — a faux documentary about the assassination of George W. Bush.

The movie's controversial subject matter earned it notoriety even before the festival began, and its first showing drew a line that wrapped around two city blocks. That's an awful lot of attention for a micro-budgeted indie by an unknown director, which likely won't find anything resembling a mainstream audience.

Even more off-key has been the hype for Todd Field's ''Little Children,'' which screened to two packed houses. The film stars Kate Winslet as a dowdy suburban housewife who has an affair with stay-at-home dad Patrick Wilson. (Jennifer Connelly plays Wilson's wife.)

If you've seen the trailer, you might be expecting a ''Fatal Attraction''-style thriller. The actual movie is an uneasy, often plodding mixture of satire and solemnity — you never know if you're supposed to laugh at these characters or be moved by them. All that said, ''Little Children'' went over very well here. More than a few people told me they think it's the best film at the festival. Whether that enthusiasm will reach beyond Toronto—or whether it's simply a case of people overpraising a movie because they need ''something'' to praise—remains to be seen.

Speaking of Kate Winslet, she was looking very lovely in a strapless black dress at Monday night's press dinner for ''Little Children.'' If nothing else, she deserves credit for lending her luster to this year's festival, which also seems to be the least star-studded in recent memory. Indeed, the local papers have been more preoccupied with the stars who ''couldn't'' make it (Peter O'Toole, Jude Law, Jennifer Connelly) and the movies the festival ''couldn't'' land (Martin Scorsese's ''The Departed,'' the Nicole Kidman vehicle ''Fur'').

As the festival headed for its closing today, there were still a few unknown quantities left to consider, including Ethan Hawke's adaptation of his own novel, ''The Hottest State,'' and ''Black Book,'' a thriller by Paul Verhoeven (''Showgirls,'' ''Robocop''). And there was one late-breaking title.

''Breaking and Entering,'' the latest from Anthony Minghella (''The English Patient,'' ''The Talented Mr. Ripley''), starring Jude Law as an architect who has an affair with a Bosnian refugee (Juliette Binoche, doing some of the best acting of her career), is the most modest and restrained movie Minghella has ever made. But it's also one of the most affecting — a study of very ordinary people prone to making very human mistakes.

For once at this year's Toronto Film Festival, you didn't ask yourself, ''Is that all there is?''

There's a glorious, if decidedly masochistic, Toronto film festival tradition: Journalists and industry types work themselves into a furious lather trying to find The Next Big Thing. Following a year that premiered the likes of ''Brokeback Mountain,'' ''Capote'' and ''Pride & Prejudice,'' the eagerness to uncover another masterpiece feels especially palpable.

Take the case of the first press screening for ''All the King's Men,'' Steven Zaillian's long-delayed remake of the Oscar-winning 1949 film adapted from novelist Robert Penn Warren's political psychodrama. The new version stars Sean Penn as corrupt Louisiana Gov. Willie Stark.

The line began forming well over an hour before the doors opened. Dozens ended up getting turned away — which is unusual for a movie that is opening soon. But this was the film's first official screening, following more than a year of changed release dates and bad Internet buzz.

Alas, the folks who got turned away should count their blessings: ''All the King's Men'' is a case of Hollywood good intentions gone far awry. Penn chews the scenery wildly, while Jude Law (as his right-hand man) wins the prize for worst Cajun accent in film history. The movie — which also stars Anthony Hopkins, Kate Winslet and James Gandolfini — basically consists of one static scene after another of windbaggy white men talking each other's ears off; it makes C-SPAN seem positively pulse-pounding. Word on the street after the screening was that the film's Oscar hopes (and its commercial prospects) are pretty much nil.

As for the also poorly received ''A Good Year''— starring Russell Crowe as a high-powered stockbroker who must learn to appreciate the simple pleasure of food, wine and women — well, Fox may have thought that critics could be fooled into thinking that this clunky, pedestrian comedy is actually a sophisticated adult bonbon.

''A Good Year'' is hardly the worst movie of director Ridley Scott's career, but you can't figure why he would have bothered with such flimsy material (it's based on Peter Mayle's novel, but it plays like every busy-guy-learns-to-stop-and-smell-the-roses movie ever made). Crowe's performance, meanwhile, feels entirely misconceived — lots of clumsy pratfalls and trying too hard to act adorable.

I don't mean to suggest that everything at this year's festival is crashing and burning. Any number of films have been met with considerable enthusiasm, including ''Volver,'' the latest oddball comedy-drama from director Pedro Almodovar, starring Penelope Cruz in a tremendously affecting performance as a woman who thinks her mother has risen from the dead. There is also ''Pan's Labyrinth,'' a strange mixture of fantasy film and political thriller from Texas-based director Guillermo del Toro (''Hellboy,'' ''The Devil's Backbone'').

And then there's the case of 74-year-old O'Toole, who had to cancel a visit to Toronto because of illness. Nonetheless, he's turning out to be the star of the festival, for his widely beloved turn as an aging actor who falls in lust with a teenage girl in Roger Michell's ''Venus,'' Truth be told, I sat through the film grinding my teeth in irritation — movies featuring randy old codgers who crack jokes about their failing prostates are definitely not my thing. But ''Venus'' played like gangbusters at its premiere here last Saturday night. O'Toole's performance, with its mixture of slapstick and sentimentality, is the stuff of which long-overdue Best Actor Oscars are made.

As for my own favorite movie so far, well, it likely won't be splashed across the newspaper front pages — it might not even ever play at a theater near you. But ''Offside,'' the latest from the great Iranian director Jafar Panahi (''Crimson Gold,'' ''The Circle''), is unforgettable. The story is very simple: A group of young women in Tehran attempt to attend a soccer match, only to be detained outside the stadium by soldiers. (In Iran, women are not allowed at public sporting events alongside large crowds of men.) What follows is funny, touching, gorgeously filmed and quietly outraged — a political film shot through with deep humanity. In the absence of any certifiable Oscar winners or Hollywood masterpieces, a movie like this one will do just fine.

That's so funny Frolijalover, that's what I thought at first!

I just finished watching the trailer, and I can't help but say how jealous I am. When it came to Lohan and Elijah about to kiss, my stomach twisted and my eyes started to water. It's probably not healthy for me really.

I'm not sure why, but I'm not a fan of Lindsay to begin with. I don't dislike her, but i don't like her much in a sense either.

I agree that lIndsay may be mostly the problem. I don't have that feeling in a lot of his other movies (there is at least one OBVIOUS exception to this). I just always end up thinking, "Really, is Natalie Portman THAT busy?"

What really makes me squirm is this clip with Elijah and Lindsay. And no, it's not because they're together in the movie. It's because the review(s) that have bashed his performance in this one are very true. Lindsay is like 5 times less stiff and unconvincing. ::)

I saw this clip
Perhaps his acting is not bad imo..
but His eyes have a problem. It shows him to oddly.

LOL...I think you're a little too young to remember those, but they're shoes that were very popular in the 1960s. Kind of fug-ugly, but very comfortable. My dad had a pair just like these.

Is Boby out now?
I don't know if I can go see it.
I remember so vividly what happened then. I was 14 at the time and I had met Bobby Kennedy when he was running for Senator of NY and he had shaken my hand at a rally and I thought he was such a personable guy . When he was killed , the whole country was in shock. I was in shock. .. It's not a movie to me ..... it's real and a very moving part of my life. I don't think I can see it . It's just too much . All those thougths about how our country went the wrong way because he and Dr. Martin Luther King were shot. I remember thinking that our country was in the hands of murderers and our country was going on a downward path. He was to be the light that would guide us....... and it wasn't meant to be... because of some sinister plot. Some day we will find out... Maybe when they open up the files about John Kennedy's assassination we will get a clue.

i was only 3 years old when MLK and RFK were assassinated. even though RFK was killed after MLK, i can't remember what i was doing when bobby was killed. but i can when martin was.

i was watching cartoons when they suddenly went off. men in suits sitting behind desks came on instead and stayed on. my "sister" came home early from school that day, but i thought it was because it was her birthday.

it'll be great to see what was going on during this time of strife and turmoil because i can't place myself in those times even though i was there.

Title: Re:The "Bobby" thread
Post by: frodomyhero on October 28, 2006, 11:00:17 am

I guess it was a shocking time to me personally too. .. 15 days after RFK died , my mother died. And my world changed forever............. That is probably why I don't want to relive it.

I'm not very familiar with the Oscar procedures etc., but it seems to me that Bobby is considered as a possible candidate according to this article:

http://movies.msn.com/movies/hitlist/10-31-06?GT1=7701

What say you? I would love to see Elijah in a big movie like that getting a worldwide recognition, to reconcile me with the little recognition his excellent but small indie movies had :(.

BTW, the page also has a link to Happy Feet stills and trailers. :)

as far as the oscar buzz, it's been getting a lot of that. the movie has all ready won an award for best ensemble cast even though it's not officially released yet. last year was the first time elijah wasn't involved in an oscar winning film since LOTR. i'm sure sin city would have been nominated if it weren't for the hub-bub that robert rodriguez went through with the director's guild.

and happy feet has to get something ocsar-wise. the animation in this is astounding. :)


Title: Re:The "Bobby" thread
Post by: sorceress1986 on November 06, 2006, 02:42:30 pm

YOu know, I noticed before the movie was seen anywhere, it got a look of Oscar buzz. Then after it was seen at a few festivals, that talk just stopped dead in its tracks. Now it seems to be leveling off a bit.

I think it's about even. Although I would like to see one of ELijah's movies get recognized, I don't think this one should be it. It seems, at the moment (we'll see when we see it) that it's a bit too 50/50. On the one hand, you have a lot of great stuff and great casting. ON the oher hand, there is a lot of stunt casting going on, like Demi, Sharon Stone and Lindsay Lohan. I honestly think it is going to blow up in Emilio Estevez's face.

Title: Re:The "Bobby" thread
Post by: Elijahs Impact on November 06, 2006, 03:04:02 pm

JFK won one of it's two Oscars and that has many well known stars in it also so this has a good chance but I hope it's better than the commercial.

That's certainly a possibility. I've read 12 reviews so far. Most people think the acting is good, but the direction and script have been slammed pretty hard by some people.

I just hope the film gets a wide enough release that a lot of people will get to see it. I KNOW "Happy Feet" will come to my local theater because they're very into family type movies, but I'm not so sure about "Bobby."

It already is wide-released. There's so much hype about it right now, a bunch of hyped A-list and B-list actors in it, the Weinsteins picked it up, and it's 200% guaranteed to be wide-released. Although my theater doesn't list it coming when it does list Happy Feet, they usually wait a few months after everyone else releases a movie sometimes before they have room for it.

My apologies if this has been posted about already, but Emilio Estavez (don't know if I spelled that right, but the director of Bobby) is going to be on Oprah tomorrow, so maybe he will be talking about the movie :)

If I remember correctly, you live in the boonies, like I do. My nearest movie theater is 26 miles away. It caters to families and is big on animated films. There's no question it will have "Happy Feet." I had to drive 78 miles roundtrip to a theater to see "Sin City." "Everything is Illuminated" and "Green Street Hooligans" didn't play anywhere even that close. I wouldn't be surprised if it didn't play anywhere in my entire state.

It's very frustrating....especially after living in NYC.

*Lindsay Lohan (HERBIE: FULLY LOADED, various tabloid stories) plays a young girl marrying Elijah Wood (you nerds know who I'm talking about) so he won't have to go to Vietnam. She says some platitudes about how until someone in charge can tell us why we're over there she'll do her part to save young men's lives. Then the powerful Estevez character drama comes in when you find out SHE REALLY LOVES HIM! I'm not big on abstinence before marriage but when they find out they're in love, do they really have to screw right then even though they're getting married later the same god damn day? Is it that hard to keep it in your pants? Jesus, kids today. Er, yesterday.

they sure are! but the majority of the reviews that i've read such as the one you posted are good ones. but what we need to remember is that this movie will connect us back to the struggles of what people were going through at that time and sadly still are going through. the younger generation should see it to know, and the older to remember.

I might look like I'm defending Lindsay Lohan, but really, I don't see what she said there that constituted her as a witch. Britney Spears is really no prize, and I could care less about her trashy personal life with that loser K-Fed anyway. She did say it was none of her business... and it isn't.

Honestly, the characters are super undeveloped and Ashton Kutcher's character is completely misplaced and ruined half the movie. ::)

[color=Navy]I just got home from seeing Bobby, too, and I would have to agree with you in large part, ShannyBanany. The characters were underdeveloped, but then, how the heck *could* you really develop 22 main characters? Yet, despite the fact they were so underdeveloped, I actually found myself caring about each and every one of them. I think that truly says something for Emilio Estevez, which I honestly didn't expect to be saying. As for AK, you would have had to have lived that culture at that time to see how well his character truly fit in. He grates on my nerves at the best of times, but I have to say he did well in this part.

As for Elijah's character, and Lindsay, I was pleasantly surprised. I had read a review early on that called Elijah "wooden" in this role... chalk it up to my being partial or not, but I certainly didn't think so. And I thought the two of them pulled off the onscreen chemistry fine, although there was a lot less of them (and *that*) than I would have liked to see. ;) I have to say I admire the way Ms. Lohan played her part - and *that's* something else I didn't expect to say. ::)

The ending - oh, yes, cannot really post about it without flying huge spoiler flags and even then it would be about impossible to protect people from spoilers on this forum. But it affected me very deeply, for more than one reason.

As a child of the 60s and early 70s, I have to say the feel and look of the film is true; I bought it completely. And I came away thinking that perhaps RFK truly *was* the last great idealist to aspire for leadership in our country. That thought makes me sad, and I will confess I was in tears at the end, again, for more than one reason. [/color]

The ending - oh, yes, cannot really post about it without flying huge spoiler flags and even then it would be about impossible to protect people from spoilers on this forum. But it affected me very deeply, for more than one reason.

As a child of the 60s and early 70s, I have to say the feel and look of the film is true; I bought it completely. And I came away thinking that perhaps RFK truly *was* the last great idealist to aspire for leadership in our country. That thought makes me sad, and I will confess I was in tears at the end, again, for more than one reason. [/color]
[/quote]

Ditto on all counts.....especially about wishing there was more Elijah& lindsay stuff. i expected to enjoy the film, well because I always enjoy seeing Elijah, sometimes I have to say yes I loved Elijahs part in a film but really thought the film lacked something..anything...

What I didn't expect was to come away moved, engaged and totally impressed, and by the sounds of the people in the theater with me they all were too. I am with Lith re: the end, I came away with a sense of loss, and though I was only 5 at the time it made me feel like it was something that impacted me personally. And I was also effected greatly by the personal stories especially as they came to a culmination at the end.....

Truly an exceptional film...My hubby even said he'd go back and see it again, and it crossed our minds to go out and buy tickets for the 1100pm show and sit back in our seats and wait. Simply awesome and I expect we will be seeing this film nominated for something come Golden globe and academy award time...enough said by me....sufice to say Elijah was beautiful, talented and totally convincing as a young man trying to avoid being shipped off to the front in vietnam. Sigh, I really do want to go see it again to get some more of the finer points I am sure I missed.........

I haven't seen the film, but I was 14 at the time, when everything was so intense, including the political climate at the time, and Bobby was the senator from NY....... I met him, he came to our little town, shook my hand , and . well he was so well liked , so personable...... yet compassionate for the people around him...... and when the news played over and over again......."it's on to Chicago and let's win there"...... after he had just won in California and he was at the hotel......... then that was the last thing he said...... it was indeed one of the darkest day in American history....... I believe when the archives are opened on JFK's murder , we will see how this country was pushed into another political direction by the assassinations of JFK, Martin Luther King and RFk......
Our country was no longer naivette in thinking we could have a world of peace, because violence is what took it away............so sad,,,,,,, so very sad..... for us all :-[

i just saw bobby.

amazing! :D

i didn't get the feeling of any underdeveloped characters in this. emilio told the basics with each one and that's all he needed to do. i felt connected with everyone, even with ashton. i remember reading this film originally went over 3 hours, so there may be some more development going on in the longer version for those who felt short-changed with it. i hope there will be more on the dvd when it comes out.

though everyones performance was top notch, i was surprised with nick cannon. who knew this guy could act? ;)

the ending was powerful and that one thing i totally didn't see coming. you know the thing i speak of.

i'll be seeing it again, and i highly recommend it.

I don't know if I could see this movie..... it wouldn't be entertainment.It'would bring up emotions that were very real to me.
I saw clips of it and it shows Bobby Kennedy just before he uttered the words "It's on to Chicago and let's win there"...... I don't know if I can reliive that again. I'm grateful for it because people of different generations will be given an idea of what happened then...... But to me , who lived it. It is a symbol of how our country was moved away from Kennedy's ideals, Kings morals and went towards other people's ....... people who are still in power now......... to me Bobby Kennedy's death , Martin Luther King's death was I feel planned out very well to turn the politics of this country into a different direction...... which it did.

[color=Navy]f.r.o.d.o., I understand your trepidation about seeing the film. I was 15 when Bobby died, and over the next few years was one of the peacefully civil disobedient flower children who risked arrest and other forms of coercion, to try to promulgate the very ideals Bobby and Dr. King embodied. I know that seeing this film may open old wounds for you. It did for me.

But seeing it, and especially seeing it with my 29 year old daughter, gives me a means of opening a dialogue with her about what those times were like, how innocent and idealistic and in many ways good we were as a people then. We've lost so much of that, so very much. And if I can help my daughter see and understand just a bit of that, and she can pass it on to her children, maybe I can still make a small difference. And that's what Bobby was all about, wasn't he? [/color]

Well, I guess we can agree that we disagree with that review.

Post by: Plutonic on January 10, 2007, 03:55:41 pm

I don’t know if anyone has posted this already, but there’s a small article about ‘Bobby’ in the February UK edition of ‘Empire’ magazine (page 18). The article has quotes from Emilio Estevez describing how he assembled some of the cast members.

Elijah is mentioned in the section about Lindsay Lohan:

“Lindsay’s agents kept pushing her. I’d heard horrible stories, so I said, ‘Is she interested in being thought of as a serious actress? Because this schedule can’t support anybody misbehaving’. They assured me, ‘Yes, she wants to meet with you’. So I called Elijah and said, ‘I need you to come to lunch today’. I wanted another opinion, especially from the actor who would be in most of her scenes. It ended up as a love-fest. We laughed, told stories, she understood the script and the role and was committed. She left, and Elijah and I looked at each other and said, ‘She’d be fabulous.’”

There’s a picture of Lindsay, but not one, unfortunately, of Elijah.

I saw Bobby for the first time last night.
It had impact but falls short of the message of RFK........ I wondered what the message of the movie was. Of course Elijah was great in it. Anthony Hopkins and Harry Belafonte could have been edited out and it would have been the same..... Ashton Crusher's character was so weak. It didn't need that or come up with another way to interpret that sector of the populous then... and thne there was the ending.............. I'll leave that up to all of you ........ I left crying..... which I knew I would if I ventured in to see this,.
Enjoy anyone who goes to see it. Bring handkerchiefs.

Title: Re:The "Bobby" thread
Post by: sorceress1986 on April 11, 2007, 10:49:06 pm

OK, I got my copy of the DVD and finally watched Bobby...

Overall, it wasn't bad. Wasn't great, though. Writing needed a lot of work. Cast was WAY too big. Cast was far too bipolar. Not enough Elijah, David Krumholtz and a few others, but really could have done without a many others.

Ket me get specific in a rant. OK, it isn't THAT hard to play drunk, so what is Demi Moore's excuse?!?! And there is a reason they didn't use her to sing in 'The Hunchback of Notre Dame' and this proved it. Ashton, I understand, was an emergency, but that storyline couldn't have been cut down immensely. Was Lindsay Lohan really trying? We're kidding, I hope. Where did Heather Graham's character really fit? She was a link, nothing more...That's off the top of my head.

The storylines leading up to the ending were far too simple and short. If the storylines had been cut down, that might have been easier...


OK, now let's get specific to Elijah:

I pity him in ways I hoped I never had to. I read a few reviews that compared his acting to his last name...I would blame that on that brick wall he had to deal with. You are only as good as the other person in the scene. 'Nuff said. And why does he so often end up in a pool of blood. I would have let him die just to get away from her! OK, that was biased on both ends of the argument, I know, but that girl has given me enough reasons to dislike her.

Title: Re:The "Bobby" thread
Post by: Saenger85 on April 12, 2007, 03:53:08 pm

Ok, so I finally saw this (bought it the day it came out on DVD, for Elijah). As a kaleidoscopic view of the Ambassador Hotel (standing as a microcosm of the greater country) on the eve of Bobby's death, it has a certain fascination, but its biggest problem is telling the story through the eyes of this array of characters and not giving any of them a chance to be three-dimensional or the actors enough screen time to stand out.

It really stands out as a movie that needed a lot of editing and tightening up and unfortunately didn't get it. A lot of the characters are completely superfluous, like Heather Graham, the Czech reporter, Ashton Kutcher's ridiculous cameo that belonged with the deleted scenes on a special feature, if even there, etc. In fact, you could almost argue that they were ALL superfluous, because no one is given a chance to be three-dimensional. I actually thought Lindsay Lohan was fine, and her scenes with Elijah were some of the most interesting in the movie (in my ever-so-slightly-biased opinion of course ;)). I liked Freddy Rodriguez and Shia LaBeouf, even if LaBeouf's plotline was kind of silly and extraneous. Demi Moore went over-the-top with the whole drunk thing, although it was kind of funny watching like three guys having to guide her down the hall and that hair that makes her look like some Star Trek alien queen or something. They gave such a phenomenal actor as Anthony Hopkins practically NOTHING to do, he just wanders in and out of the movie playing cards once every half hour or so. So for being so driven by this ensemble of characters, Bobby kind of failed in that regard by not giving them a chance to make us care about most of them.

The ending is powerful though, and IMO a lot of the actors went a ways toward justifying their existences with their acting when Kennedy actually gets assassinated. And that Kennedy speech playing over the shots of all the shooting victims and the archive footage puts a lump in your throat.

So, with its merits, but definitely a very flawed production that badly needed a lot of editing and tightening up BEFORE it was released.

Elijah, even though you didn't get to see enough of him in my opinion, was also wonderful.

I'd rent this one again anytime!
