Hyde Park on Hudson

By DAVID WEINER

April 09, 2013

Bill Murray and Laura Linney deliver memorable performances in this frothy tale based on true events. In 1939, international affairs must be juggled as FDR (Murray) readies to host the King and Queen of England (Samuel West and Olivia Colman) for a weekend at the Roosevelt home at Hyde Park on Hudson, marking the first-ever visit of a reigning British monarch to the U.S. As Britain faces the threat of war with Germany, the royals are desperately looking to FDR for America's support. The story is seen through the point of view of Franklin's neighbor and intimate, Daisy (Linney). Olivia Williams, Elizabeth Wilson and Elizabeth Marvel also star.
