Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln isn’t the only recent film to dive into the life and psyche of a beloved U.S. President, Roger Michell‘s Hyde Park on Hudson is poised to do the same thing when it comes to Franklin Delano Roosevelt (Bill Murray). Except, well, as dear as the 13th Amendment was to old Abe, it certainly wasn’t as, ahem, personal as the slice of life Michell has tackled in his film, as it pertains to FDR. Let’s just say that the president had a very special relationship with his distant cousin (Laura Linney), and that’s just a part of Michell’s new film.
