Picks and Pans Review: Postcard from Toronto: Bobby

UPDATED 10/02/2006 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 10/02/2006 at 01:00 AM EDT

A hot ticket at this year's Toronto film festival, Bobby, written and directed by Emilio Estevez, is set at L.A.'s Ambassador Hotel the day Robert F. Kennedy was killed there in 1968. The movie reunites Estevez with former Brat Pack girlfriend Demi Moore and also stars Sharon Stone, Ashton Kutcher and Lindsay Lohan. The work-in-progress version I saw is sprawling, and several characters seem thinly drawn, but its admiration for RFK reminds us that his causes (ending civil injustice, pollution and an unpopular war) remain valid today. Bobby hits theaters Nov. 17.
