CT  CTH Hyde Park On Hudson

 

Everyone loves Bill Murray.  For a monumentally historic political moment,Hyde Park on the Hudson is notably apolitical.  It’s more of a tepid melodrama, soap opera in the house of Roosevelt.  That’s not to say it isn’t watchable and fun at times, but even a minor moment that included some overt racism was cut, and ended up in the deleted scenes on the DVD.  It’s more about playing the game than of what the game entails.

I’d give it a C for its escapist potential.  Written by one of Roosevelt’s mistresses, or based on her letters anyway, the romance is the main story, and not the buildup to the second world war.
