About the Movie
Academy Award® nominees Bill Murray and Laura Linney star in this delightful look at one of the most pivotal meetings in history. As Great Britain faces an imminent war with Germany, US President Franklin D. Roosevelt (Murray) and his wife, Eleanor (Olivia Williams), invite the King and Queen of England for a weekend at their home in upstate New York. But during the first-ever visit of a reigning British monarch to America, international affairs must be juggled with the complexities of FDR’s domestic establishment, as wife, mother, and mistresses all conspire to make the royal trip an unforgettable one. Hyde Park of Hudson is a charming and fresh look at true events and the mysteries of love and friendship, from the acclaimed director of Notting Hill.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Murray's spot-on portrayal of a man juggling myriad pressures and demands, from petty to momentous, marks one of the film's greatest strengths.
Rotten: It's never a bad movie, but it can't quite gel into a good one either.
Rotten: Roger Michell's brightly lit film turns America's 32nd president from world statesman into naughty codger, quite the fall from grace for the man who led his country through the Great Depression and the Second World War.
Rotten: Hyde Park on the Hudson' is a forgettable historical footnote.
Hudson on the River
WORST MOVIE I HAVE EVER SEEN!
It is so not about the real FDR. I would know Im a history major! In my honest opinion this movie should never had been made.
Simply the worst...
Hated every portrayal of every character. I thought it was impossible to make everyone look pathetic but I was wrong.
