GREENLIGHT #97: Bobby (with "A Few Good Men" and "Disclosure")

Ann and Les are both fans of the man but split on the movie Bobby (2006.) The movie, written and directed by Emilio Estevez, tells the story of life at The Ambassador Hotel on the last day of Robert F. Kennedy's life. Les liked seeing all the cast of thousands in their vignettes and how they reacted to RFK's death. He particularly liked watching Laurence Fishburne play a cook with a thoughtful mind. Ann felt cheated that this movie named after such a distinctive man was not really about him. But both of them loved seeing the actual clips from RFK's speeches. And both agree thatChristian Slater and Demi Moore were worth watching. For their GREENLIGHT Rentals, Les recommends his favorite film with Ms. Moore who plays an attorney in the navy in the Rob Reiner directed film called A Few Good Men (1992.) Her underling but lead attorney is played by Tom Cruise and their key witness, who challenges their ability to "handle the truth" is played, of course, by Jack Nicholson. And Ann reminded Les not to forget the quiet but grand performance of Kevin Bacon as the prosecutor. Ann also recommends a film featuring the talents of Ms. Moore playing a corporate mogul who wants her way every way with her underling Michael Douglas. Her boss, played by Donald Sutherland, is happy to oblige her until he is forced to handle the truth. This spellbinding work of corporate intrigue was directed by Barry Levinson and based on Michael Crighton's book of the same name called Disclosure (1994.)
