A Welll Acted and Directed Slice of History

By jzactor
The story being told in Hyde Park on the Hudson is very simple. President Franklin D Roosevelt invited the King and Queen of England to the president's personal resort to rest and relax and meet...

Hugely Disappointing

By UpperWestSider1
Thumbs up on the locations, sets and costumes, but thumbs down on everything else. The lead characters -- FDR, Eleanor, the King & Queen, and, yes, Daisy -- are presented as such dim wits. Come on...

Bill Murry is flawless as FDR

Hyde Park Hid Picture Sharpness

By rayfridley3

Hyde Park on the Hudson

By Smitty615
