I haven't had a chance to see Hyde Park on Hudson yet, but I'm very excited to. It's based on the true story of the royal state visit to the United States by King George VI and Queen Elizabeth (our late Queen Mother) on the eve of the Second World War. Bill Murray plays President Roosevelt, with Laura Linney as his distant cousin, Margaret Suckley, Olivia Williams as the First Lady, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Samuel West and Olivia Colman as King George and Queen Elizabeth.

Your mention of Lauran Linney reminded of another historical adaptation that had this accomplished actor starring in it.ReplyDelete
Have you seen the HBO mini seris 'John Adams'? If yes, what did you think about it?
Now that you are taking a break from Tudors, how about some blogs post about the American founding fathers?
