Palazzo del Cinema. A standing ovation for Emilio Estevez, at The 63rd Venice Film Festival, he wrote, directed and acted in the film Bobby. Since Emilio was five years old and met Bobby Kennedy while he was sitting on his father's, Martin Sheen's, shoulders he has had a fascination with Robert Kennedy. He told me that if Kennedy hadn't been shot... it's one of "The famous What If's...of our time.". The movie is about the loss. It is the story of the assassination of U.S. Senator Robert F. Kennedy, on June 6th, 1968, which centers around 22 people who were at the Ambassador Hotel where he was killed. The movie has an exceptional cast; Lindsay Lohan, Elijah Wood, Emilio Estevez, Harry Belafonte, Anthony Hopkins, Helen Hunt, Martin Sheen, Christian Slater, Ashton Kutcher and award winning performances by Sharon Stone and Demi Moore. The movie will be released just in time for the Oscar nominations, and I wouldn't be surprised if it didn't take home a few. Estevez's next film will be called Johnny Long Shot. It is an action packed and exciting story about a family and harness racing. Asked if any member of his family will be in the film, Emilio replied "No, they have done working with me, because I never pay them."
