The King’s Speech

Film Review: Hyde Park on Hudson (2012)


Bill Murray is an absolute God of the film world, a Mecca of Cool, the King of Kings, and he’s developed into quite the actor in his old age. In Hyde Park on Hudson Mr Murray tackles FDR in an interesting time in his life, a week in 1939 when the King and Queen of England (Elizabeth and Bertie) make the first trip to America of any royal, to ask for support in the looming war.
