About Hyde Park On Hudson
In June 1939, President Franklin D. Roosevelt (Bill Murray) and his wife Eleanor (Olivia Williams) are due to host the King and Queen of England (Samuel West and Olivia Colman) for a weekend at the Roosevelt home at Hyde Park on Hudson. It is the first time a reigning English monarch has visited America, and will be a key event in establishing a better relationship between the two nations. But Franklin is more concerned with his distant cousin Daisy (Laura Linney), a country girl who has been sent to keep him company. Of course, this must be kept from the Brits, who are disconcerted by the presence of hotdogs at a picnic. Will the weekend of royal and political protocol go smoothly?
