(USA, 2006, 112 minutes)

The lives of a number of people intertwine at Los Angeles’ Ambassador Hotel on June 4, 1968 — the day presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy was murdered at its pantry. Amiable but flawed all-star mosaic melodrama whose elegy for a fallen politician never meshes with the Grand Hotel-styled soap opera at its heart; the cast, most of them not given enough to do but still game, end up making it seem a better film than it actually is.
