Movie: Hyde Park on Hudson

This amusing drama is set in June of 1939, at President Roosevelt’s country estate in Hyde Park. King George makes a visit to plead for America’s support in WWII, but international affairs must be juggled with the complexities of FDR’s domestic life.  Bill Murray plays FDR and brings his character alive with humor, intelligence and a sense of confident composure that seem entirely credible, as well as very entertaining.  Laura Linney is likewise delightful as Franklin’s cousin and intimate friend.
