WIN Hyde Park on Hudson preview tickets
Hyde Park on Hudson tells the story of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (played by Academy Award nominee Bill Murray) preparing to host the King and Queen of England (starring Samuel West and Olivia Colman) for a weekend at the Roosevelt home at Hyde Park on Hudson in upstate New York in June 1939.
In this first-ever visit of a reigning British monarch to America, the royals are desperately looking to President Franklin for U.S. support as Britain faces imminent with Germany. But international affairs must be juggled with the complexities of Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s domestic establishment, as his wife Eleanor (Olivia Williams), mother Sara (Elizabeth Wilson), and secretary Missy (Elizabeth Marvel) will all play a part in making the royal weekend an unforgettable one.
Seen through the eyes of Daisy (played by Academy Award nominee Laura Linney), Franklin’s neighbor and intimate, the weekend will produce not only a special relationship between two great nations, but, for Daisy – and through her, for us all – a deeper understanding of the mysteries of love and friendship.
Blending literate wit and drama, Hyde Park on Hudson is a historical tale that uniquely explores the all-too-human side of one of history’s iconic leaders.
