Gone Too Far
Two estranged teenage brothers, one who grew up in Nigeria and one who frew up in Peckham, meet for the first time and struggle to accept each other
Bill Murray stars as Franklin D. Roosevelt, the flamboyant US president who finds himself juggling a wartime visit from the King and Queen of England with his own domestic complications
Hyde Park On Hudson is based on the 1939 visit of the King and Queen of England (Samuel West and Olivia Colman) to the upstate New York home of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (Academy Award nominee Bill Murray) and his wife Eleanor (Olivia Williams). With Britain facing imminent war with Germany, the Royals are desperately looking to FDR for support. Seen through the eyes of Daisy (Academy Award nominee Laura Linney), Franklin's neighbour and intimate, international affairs become jumbled up with the complexities of FDR's domestic establishment, as wife, mother, and mistresses all conspire to make the royal weekend an unforgettable one.
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
“Murray, who has a wider range than we sometimes realize, finds the human core of this FDR and presents it tenderly.”
Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
“Bill Murray as Franklin Delano Roosevelt is well worth paying attention to. His FDR beautifully conveys the notion of the chief executive as seductive star performer, a man who counted on his ever-appealing charm to get his way in matters both personal and professional.”
Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter
“Murray captures FDR’s wily side without overdoing it and brings the man alive with humor, alertness, intelligence and a sense of confident composure that seem entirely appropriate. The performance is both credible and very entertaining.”
Tom Huddleston, TimeOut
“Roger Michell delivers a spry, slick look at the complicated love life of US president Franklin Roosevelt. It’s a softer, slighter film than ‘The King’s Speech’ but a more complex and restless one, too, preferring a subtler, more shaded take on the tricky realities of power over fist-pumping feelgood antics.”
Directed by Roger Michell (Enduring Love, Notting Hill) from a screenplay by Richard Nelson, Hyde Park On Hudson was co-financed and co-produced by Focus Features and Film4 and was released in February 2013. Olivia Colman won a Best Supporting Actress BIFA for her performance, and the film is out on DVD and Blu-ray now.
