Hyde Park On Hudson Review

Hyde Park on Hudson is an interesting movie. It tells the story of the weekend in 1939 when the King And Queen Of England visit Franklin Delano Roosevelt and in a way, is an unofficial sequel to The Kings Speech.

Daisy (Laura Linney) is a distant cousin to Franklin Delano Roosevelt (Bill Murray) and is invited to keep him company. They soon embark on an affair.

With the war in Europe become a bigger issue every day, the King and Queen Of England (Samuel West & Olivia Coleman)  come to visit and persuade FDR to get invoved in the war.

The movie is a slow burn, but its certainly a different, especially for Bill Murray.

I forsee Oscar nominations for this movie.
