Sometimes a movie comes along that poignantly brings back how much we lost. “Bobby” is that kind of film. It serves both as a tribute through archival fooage to the man some think might have saved the country from itself, and a portrait of Americans living in a climate of prejudice, political uncertainty and an unpopular war in Vietnam (substitute Iraq). It brings back (with a gorgeous cast) all that might have been and all that was forever lost.
By all means see it. Better still, take a friend. Bobby is a moving experience. And while you are at it, tell us about any good movies you’ve seen lately.
