Sometimes art shows us perspectives on our past that relate to how we go about creating our future. On the DVD shelf at Friday Harbor's public library I found the Movie, Bobby, a star studded telling of the day Robert Kennedy was shot. It was same day he won the presidential primary in California. Besides its impressive cast it features actual footage of RFK and Walter Cronkite. The story line may seem like a mass of disjointed subplots but it is well worth seeing even just to watch Demi Moore as an alcoholic prima dona in a touching scene with her hairdresser Sharon Stone or see Harry Belefonte play chess with Anthony Hopkins. It has a good sixties inspired soundtrack including Aretha Franklin and it ends with an inspiring speech by Bobby Kennedy. Just the thing to get you ready for the caucus.
