Synopsis

Academy Award nominees Bill Murray and Laura Linney star in this historical tale that uniquely explores the all-too-human side of one of history's iconic leaders, Franklin Delano Roosevelt. In June 1939, President Roosevelt readies to host the King and Queen of England for a weekend at the Roosevelt home at Hyde Park on Hudson, in update New York - marking the first-ever visit of a reigning British monarch to America.


See through the eyes of Daisy (Ms. 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.
