    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.

    Format: DVD
    Two noticeable aspects on this site - the paucity of reviews of this period piece film and the number of negative comments that seem to blanket the responses to this very quiet little recreation of a moment in history about which few may be aware. In many ways this film, as written by Richard Nelson and directed by Roger Michell, resembles a little European art film: the recreation of conditions in the USA in the post Depression era are remarkably apt and set a fine tenor for the story (including the musical score!). In the end this is a tale about how men in powerful places interrelate in moments of tension and how those same men have flaws both physical and in character that would weigh down ordinary fellows. But the story is about a particular summer in when Britain, on the brink of war with Hitler, visited America, hoping for Allied assistance in the war that was to become World War II.

    The setting is the home away form the White House - Hyde Park on the Hudson, the home of FDR's mother (Elizabeth Wilson) who still ruled the roost despite her son's political role. FDR is enchantingly portrayed by Bill Murray who is able to show all sides of FDR's personality - his response to being a victim of polio, his wisdom at running a country beaten down by the Depression, and his need for multiple liaisons with women. In one household we meet Missy (Elizabeth Marvel) who has been both secretary and lover of some time, Daisy (Laura Linney) who is FDR's fifth cousin who enters the coterie because of her honesty and genuine affection for FDR, and we hear about `Mrs Rutherford', yet another of FDR's affairs, and of course there is the presence of Eleanor Roosevelt (a superb Olivia Williams).

    Format: DVD
    Hyde Park On Hudson is something of a problematic film, an uneven mix of some excellent performances and cinematography dragged down by a schizoid screenplay that can't seem to make up its mind which of two stories it's trying to tell: Margaret "Daisy" Suckley's long-term relationship with President Franklin Delano Roosevelt as his mistress (or one of them, anyway), or the historic visit of King George VI to meet with FDR on the eve of WWII, the first time a reigning British monarch had ever visited the US. Either would've made an interesting story, but in Hyde Park On Hudson, they end up working at cross purposes, leaving the whole disappointingly less than of the sum of its parts.

    The film begins in the early 1930's when Daisy (Laura Linney) is unexpectedly summoned by FDR's formidable mother, Sara (Elizabeth Wilson) to their home, Springwood, in Hyde Park, New York, to be a personal assistant to Franklin (Bill Murray in a truly remarkable performance). Daisy, a spinster in her early 40's who lives with her aunt and a distant (sixth cousin) relative of FDR's goes, though she has no idea of why Franklin would ask for her as she hasn't seen him in years or what her duties would involve. She soon finds out however as Franklin first charms and then later seduces her into becoming his mistress.

    Things then fast-forward to June of 1939, when the King and Queen of the United Kingdom, George VI (Samuel West) and his wife Elizabeth (Olivia Colman), are making their historic visit to the US. Franklin has invited the royal couple to spend the weekend with him at Springwood and the house is a flurry of activity making preparations. The visit has critical importance for both men.

    7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By The Movie Man VINE VOICE on April 10, 2013
    Format: Blu-ray
    "Hyde Park on Hudson" stars Bill Murray as Frankin D.Roosevelt and takes place during a summer weekend in 1939 at his Hudson Valley estate when he hosted England's King George VI (Samuel West), who hoped to gain America's support in the coming war. At the same time, according to the film, Roosevelt was pursuing an extramarital affair with a distant cousin, Daisy Suckley (Laura Linney).

    Richard Nelson's script portrays Roosevelt as both a master of political gamesmanship and a manipulator of the women around him -- wife Eleanor (Olivia Williams), Daisy, and his private secretary, Missy (Elizabeth Marvel). Murray, who might not seem a first choice to portray Roosevelt, conveys both the President's charm and a dark side rarely seen in public. His Roosevelt is surely the ideal host, going out of his way to make his guests feel comfortable, happy, and welcome.

    The film has a voyeuristic quality, with the audience as willing spectators checking out a Roosevelt who balances work and play while under enormous pressures from both his public responsibilities and private peccadilloes. It bogs down somewhat in a soap-opera subplot about Daisy discovering that she is only one in a long line of the President's lovers but, overall, the picture has a light touch and moves along briskly.

    Bonus features on the Blu-ray and DVD releases include deleted

    I want to thank the producers of this god-awful film for sending me running to Geoffrey Ward's "Closest Companion," the edited version of Daisy Suckley's diaries and the Suckley-Roosevelt correspondence that tells the real story of their special friendship. Having read many accounts of the Roosevelt administration and New Deal, including bios of FDR (Kearns Goodwin, Smith) and Eleanor (Wieson Cook), I was looking forward to "Hyde Park on the Hudson" I admire Murray and Linney, whose talents are wasted on this turgid, maudlin soap opera that takes heaps and heaps of liberties with history, distorting the characters of all concerned -- Suckley, FDR, Eleanor and the Royals -- and depicting and conflicts that almost certainly did not -- as certain as we can be w/o having been there, which these producers most assuredly were not -- occur.

    Suckley was an upper-crust Hudson Valley lady, a sixth cousin of FDR, who become his devoted companion and best friend. Although they had some kind of intimate moment once, on a hill that became the site of Top Cottage, Daisy's comments about sex (she rarely kissed him, even affectionately) and proper behavior, and general naivete, are clear throughout the text. While the film suggests that Suckley shared FDR, sexually, with Missy LeHand, his secretary, her diaries and their correspondence reveal only an ongoing very close friendship in which, as Suckley says, she and another cousin, Laura Delano acted first as companions -- Eleanor was nowhere to be seen -- and finally as loving caregivers to an increasingly frail Roosevelt, whom Suckley clearly worshipped.
