Fascinating look behind the curtain

Here's an example of when more is less. There is a terrific engaging story about the visit of the King and Queen of England to the U.S. in 1939, but it is mixed in with a story about a pedestrian affair between Roosevelt and his 5th cousin. The screen comes alive when we follow the King and Queen, but the love affair angle is deadly dull.

It was a good movie, but I was completely unprepared...!

My mum and I liked what we saw from the trailer, so we thought...'Let's just go catch it today'...! Usually I research a movie before I go and see it, but this time I didn't....and we were in such shock! We didn't prepare ourselves for the 'nature' of this movie and it depicted FDR...! Bill Murray did a superb fob as FDR and it was nice to see him in a less comedic role. Samuel West and Olivia Colman were the BEST surprise of this movie and were highly enjoyable. Laura Linney, as always, was a gift to the screen.

I'd say it was just okay. The actors did a fine job, it was just a little slow in parts. The King and Queen had some very funny lines though.
