'Hyde Park on the Hudson'

In Theaters: December 7th
Starring: Bill Murray, Laura Linney
Dircted By: Roger Michell
Bill Murray as President Franklin Delano Roosevelt? That should be enough to get us all lining up at the box office. Some mixed reviews out of the Telluride Film Festival might gives us misgivings about the plot. FDR's flirtation with his cousin Daisy Stuckley (Laura Linney) over a 1939 weekend when England's stuttering King Gorge VI (Samuel West in for Oscar winner Colin Firth) comes looking for U.S. support in the war. But Big Bill as FDR? Count me in.
