Bill Murray continues to impress me

I was in college when Bill Murray and the originals of SNL were comedy icons that drove what we all did on Saturday night - we needed to be near a TV set when 11:30 pm hit. Murray has shown how talented he really is with all the roles he has played since then. Playing FDR, he gives you all the idiosyncrasies and mannerisms of a man that was both great and flawed, in such a way that you understand why people admired and followed him. The cast is equally able to lead you through what was a turning point in world history and make you feel like you are there, witnessing the first times that leaders tried to fortify alliances and maneuver the course of the future. The photography is as beautiful as upstate NY actually is... Loved Laura Linney - she so perfect as Daisy!

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 never thought my opinion would be closer to rex reed's than a.o.scott's, but with excellent acting, humor throughout ,the look of history,and mostly good camerawork -- definitely good enough.
