NEW YORK, Oct. 8 (UPI) -- Surviving members of the late Robert F. Kennedy's family have offered their support for "Bobby," the upcoming film about the assassinated U.S. Senator.

"Bobby" -- scheduled for a Nov. 23 release -- was directed by Emilio Estevez.

"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," said Mrs. Robert F. Kennedy in a news release. "Hopefully the film will inspire a new generation to make gentle the life of the world."

"To remember Robert Kennedy's life, his commitment to social justice and civil rights, his determination to end war and to make America an instrument of a more just and peaceful world is the purpose of this movie," said Kerry Kennedy, "and for that our family is most grateful to Emilio Estevez, (producer) Harvey Weinstein and the cast of extraordinary talents that have made this project possible."

The release from the Weinstein Co. said the film, which Estevez also wrote, revisits Kennedy's assassination in 1968 at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles.
