Trailer: Bill Murray in Hyde Park on the Hudson

— Posted by The "Superior" Anthony

Sometimes it’s easy to forget that Bill Murray is good for more than a few good laughs. He’s fantastic at that but he’s also someone who’d proven himself to have some range and step outside the typical comedic boundaries for an actor. He’s one of the few that can go back and forth and stay razor sharp in both genres, (Sorry Tom Hanks The Ladykillers sucked), and deliver a interesting and entertaining film. His latest offering shows the actor portraying Franklin D. Roosevelt.

In June 1939, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (Academy Award nominee Bill Murray) and his wife Eleanor (Olivia Williams) host the King and Queen of England (Samuel West and Olivia Colman) for a weekend at the Roosevelt home at Hyde Park on Hudson, in upstate New York – the first-ever visit of a reigning English monarch to America. With Britain facing imminent war with Germany, the Royals are desperately looking to FDR for support. But international affairs must be juggled with the complexities of FDR’s domestic establishment, as wife, mother, and mistresses all conspire to make the royal weekend an unforgettable one. Seen through the eyes of Daisy (Academy Award nominee Laura Linney), Franklin’s neighbor and intimate, the weekend will produce not only a special relationship between two great nations, but, for Daisy – and through her, for us all – a deeper understanding of the mysteries of love and friendship.
