Kennedy's widow Ethel says, "Our family is grateful to Emilio Estevez and the extraordinary cast of Bobby for remembering Robert Kennedy's life and his commitment to social justice, peace and equality.

"Hopefully the film will inspire a new generation to make gentle the life of the world."

The movie opens in limited release Nov. 17 and nationwide on Nov. 23.
