Hyde Park On HudsonHyde Park on Hudson is a 2012 British biographical comedy-drama film directed by Roger Michell.


The film stars Bill Murray and Laura Linney as Franklin D. Roosevelt and Margaret Suckley, respectively. It was based on Margaret Suckley’s private journals and diaries discovered after Suckley's death, about her love affair with and intimate details about President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

In June 1939, King George VI (then separately but simultaneously monarch of Canada, the United Kingdom, and four other countries) and his wife, Queen Elizabeth made a visit to the United States as king and queen of Canada, during which they stayed at President Franklin D. Roosevelt's country estate in Hyde Park, New York. At the same time, the President was growing closer to his sixth cousin and eventual mistress, Margaret Suckley. Roosevelt hoped he could use the visit to, in part, bolster American support for the United Kingdom on the eve of World War II, which broke out less than three months later.

In early March 2011, director Roger Michell started searching for U.S. actors to play President Roosevelt and Eleanor Roosevelt. Bill Murray agreed to play Roosevelt in late March.

Hyde Park on Hudson had its world premiere at the 2012 Telluride Film Festival on 31 August 2012, then at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival on 10 September 2012, and again at the 2012 Savannah Film Festival on 31 October 2012, with limited release in the United States on 5 and 7 of December 2012, and wide release in January 2013. The UK release will follow on 1 February 2013.

The film has received mixed reviews from critics. On Rotten Tomatoes, it has a 40% "rotten" rating based on 122 reviews. On Metacritic, the film holds a 51/100 rating, indicating "mixed or average reviews."

The A.V. Club named it one of the worst movies of 2012, criticizing "the slapdash manner in which it’s assembled is genuinely shocking" and its "prevailing idiocy."

Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times enjoyed the film, giving it 3-and-a-half stars out of 4 and said of Murray's performance: "Murray, who has a wider range than we sometimes realize, finds the human core of this FDR and presents it tenderly."

Bill Murray's performance as Roosevelt did garner praise, as he received a Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Actor in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy.

On 5 December 2012, a panel discussion was held in Washington, D.C., to discuss the movie and FDR.

Focusing on how the historical events and people are portrayed, Conrad Black, author of Franklin Delano Roosevelt: Champion of Freedom, said the film took "large, ... sometimes scurrilous, liberties with historical facts." In particular, he stated the movie erred in its depiction both of Roosevelt's relationship with women and of Eleanor Roosevelt's sexuality.
