Reviews:
"[Murray] does a wonderfully jaunty job of it in HYDE PARK ON HUDSON, a seriocomic look at an eventful weekend at the chief executive's country estate as well as at his unusual domestic arrangement." - 08/31/2012 Hollywood Reporter


"Mr. Murray gives a fascinating performance....And Ms. Linney is certainly engaging in the role." - 12/06/2012 Wall Street Journal


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Murray, who has a wider range than we sometimes realize, finds the human core of this FDR and presents it tenderly." - 12/12/2012 Chicago Sun-Times


3 stars out of 5 -- "The key reason to visit HYDE PARK is Bill Murray, who winningly portrays Roosevelt with sly understatement and assured authority." - 12/03/2012 Box Office


"Bill Murray as Franklin Delano Roosevelt is well worth paying attention to. His FDR beautifully conveys the notion of the chief executive as seductive star performer..." - 12/07/2012 Los Angeles Times


"[Murray delivers] a loose but effective reading of Roosevelt which concentrates on FDR's charisma but also reveals a wily, hard-nosed streak." - 02/01/2013 Sight and Sound


3 stars out of 5 -- "[A] showcase for Murray's mischievous, deceptively scatty performance....Elegantly shot, this is a quality product..." - 03/01/2013 Total Film
