Plot Summary: The story of the love affair between FDR and his distant cousin Margaret “Daisy” Suckley, centered around the weekend in 1939 when the King and Queen of the United Kingdom visited upstate New York.
Director: Roger Michell
Writer: Richard Nelson
Stars: Bill Murray, Laura Linney, Olivia Williams
Serious Jest: (Don’t Bother) Like The King’s Speech Part 2, but without Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush, or the same quality cinematography…or the same quality script…or the same…well, at least it had Murray. I admire FDR as a President, and some of the historical events portrayed were very interesting, but I would have been just as content reading about them in a short article, rather than burning over an hour and a half on it. This…movie…was…crazy…sssslowwwwww….
