  • Producer/director Roger Michell teams with screenwriter Richard Nelson to adapt Nelson's BBC radio play chronicling the extramarital affair between President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (Bill Murray) and his distant cousin, Daisy (Laura Linney), which comes to light during a royal visit from the King and Queen of England (Samuel West and Olivia Colman) at his home in Hyde Park. As war engulfs Europe and the king seeks the support of the American government, President Roosevelt struggles to balance his domestic affairs with his international obligations as Commander in Chief.

  • Critic Reviews
    "[Murray] does a wonderfully jaunty job of it in HYDE PARK ON HUDSON, a seriocomic look at an eventful weekend at the chief executive's country estate as well as at his unusual domestic arrangement."
    Hollywood Reporter

    "Mr. Murray gives a fascinating performance....And Ms. Linney is certainly engaging in the role."
    Wall Street Journal

    3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Murray, who has a wider range than we sometimes realize, finds the human core of this FDR and presents it tenderly."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    3 stars out of 5 -- "The key reason to visit HYDE PARK is Bill Murray, who winningly portrays Roosevelt with sly understatement and assured authority."
    Box Office

    "Bill Murray as Franklin Delano Roosevelt is well worth paying attention to. His FDR beautifully conveys the notion of the chief executive as seductive star performer..."
    Los Angeles Times

    "[Murray delivers] a loose but effective reading of Roosevelt which concentrates on FDR's charisma but also reveals a wily, hard-nosed streak."
    Sight and Sound

    3 stars out of 5 -- "[A] showcase for Murray's mischievous, deceptively scatty performance....Elegantly shot, this is a quality product..."
