Hudson

Historical dramas are all the rage these days, especially British history, people just love those accents and suits don’t they?  Hyde Park on the Hudson stars Bill Murray as President Franklin D. Roosevelt and follows a weekend in 1939 marked by the first ever visit to America by a British monarchy as King George VI and Queen Elizabeth visit Roosevelt’s upstate New York cottage.

Murray looks like he had a lot of fun with the role; you can already hear the Oscar buzz can’t you?  The film was directed by Roger Michell (Notting Hill), and also stars Laura Linney.  Hyde Park on the Hudson opens December 7th.
