Bobby follows the lives of various people—rich, poor, young, old, black, white—on the day leading up to the assassination of Senator Robert F. Kennedy on June 5th, 1968. Lindsay Lohan and Elijah Wood are Diane Howser and William Avary, just friends. However, their platonic relationship changes when Diane agrees to marry William in the hopes that he won’t be sent to Vietnam, as the threat of a full-out war looms in the near-future. What started as a possible life-saving favor for a friend turns into the real deal.
Diane ultimately confesses her true feelings of love to William and the two approach the idea of their wedding with completely new perspective. Lohan and Wood are joined by other great actors in this film, including Harry Belafonte, Laurence Fishburne, Anthony Hopkins, Helen Hunt, Ashton Kutcher, Shia LaBeouf, Demi Moore, Christian Slater, and Sharon Stone. —SS
