Blockbuster, Oscar bait or something else?
Starring Bill Murray as Franklin D. Roosevelt and Laura Linney as Margaret Suckley, the president's distant cousin and mistress, this racy British-made film barely escaped an NC-17 rating. Kidding! Their romance is just one aspect of this nostalgic period piece, which focuses on Britain's King George VI (he of "The King's Speech") and Queen Consort Elizabeth's historic visit to FDR's Hyde Park home on the eve of World War II.
