In 1968, five years after president John F Kennedy was shot, his brother Robert was looking to step into his shoes. But this complex drama doesn't focus on the presidential hopeful. Instead, it offers a glimpse into the lives of twenty-two different people at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles on the fateful night that "RFK" was due to give a speech having won a vital victory on what he hoped would be his way to the White House. Each of the characters is dealing with their own problems in the shadow of the ongoing Vietnam War and a country in upheaval. A mixture of true historical drama and cultural allegory, the film vividly captures a single night which would have a huge impact on each of its characters, as well as the country at large.
Compelling Oscar-winning drama charts the rise and fall of corrupt governor Willie Stark.
