Giveaway: $50 American Express Gift Card for a Night at the Movies

Hyde Park

Any movie starring Bill Murray and Laura Linney has GREAT written all over it. I’m looking forward to seeing Hyde Park On Hudson.  That’s why I’m thrilled to be giving away a night for one reader to see it and have a night at the movies.

Together they;re starring in a historical tale that uniquely explores the all-too-human side of one of history’s iconic leaders, FDR. Blending literate wit and drama, Hyde Park on Hudson is directed by Roger Michell from a screenplay by Richard Nelson.

In June 1939, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (played by Murrary) readies to host the King and Queen of England (Samuel West and Olivia Colman) for a weekend at the Roosevelt home at Hyde Park on Hudson, in upstate New York – marking the first-ever visit of a reigning British monarch to America. As Britain faces imminent war with Germany, the royals are desperately looking to FDR for U.S. support.

But international affairs must be juggled with the complexities of FDR’s domestic establishment, as his wife Eleanor (Olivia Williams), mother Sara (Elizabeth Wilson), and secretary Missy (Elizabeth Marvel) will all play a part in making the royal weekend an unforgettable one.

Seen through the eyes of Daisy (played by Linney), Franklin’s neighbor and intimate, the weekend will produce not only a special relationship between two great nations, but, for Daisy – and through her, for us all – a deeper understanding of the mysteries of love and friendship.

Sound like the next movie on your list?
