Storyline Heading
In June 1939, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and his wife Eleanor host the King and Queen of England for a weekend at the Roosevelt home at Hyde Park on Hudson, in upstate New York - the first-ever visit of a reigning English monarch to America. With Britain facing imminent war with Germany, the Royals are desperately looking to FDR for support. But international affairs must be juggled with the complexities of FDR's domestic establishment, as wife, mother, and mistresses all conspire to make the royal weekend an unforgettable one. Seen through the eyes of Daisy, Franklin's neighbor and intimate, the weekend will produce not only a special relationship between two great nations, but, for Daisy - and through her, for us all - a deeper understanding of the mysteries of love and friendship.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama Comedy - While centering around President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, this is film focuses on a fairly narrow time period of his life, and mostly his personal rather than political life. Fans of leads Bill Murray and Laura Linney will have plenty to savor. Adult themes, mild language, and some sensuality make the film inappropriate for children.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average Although it's unfair to say Hyde Park on Hudson fails completely, it offers a portrait that is more incomplete than Elizabeth Shoumatoff's famous watercolor.

USA Today Full Review
Average A romance that grows out of admiration over a stamp collection is about as boring as it sounds.

NY Post Full Review
Good It certainly doesn't hurt that this symbolic gesture also turns out to be one of the funniest sight gags in any movie this year.
