REVIEW: HYDE PARK ON HUDSON
From Roger Michell, the acclaimed director of Notting Hill, comes Hyde Park of Hudson, a
charming and fresh look at one of the most pivotal meetings in history. Starring Academy Award® nominees Bill Murray (Lost in
Translation, Moonrise Kingdom) and Laura Linney (The Savages, Love Actually), Hyde Park on Hudson explores the
mysteries of love and friendship, and the bond between U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt (Murray) and his neighbor and
intimate Margaret Suckley (Linney). In 1939, as Great Britain faces the imminent war with Germany, FDR invites the King and
Queen of England for a June weekend at his Upstate NY home. During this first-ever visit of a reigning British monarch to
America, international affairs must be juggled with the complexities of FDR’s domestic establishment. Focus Features’ Hyde
