Review: Bill Murray shines as FDR in 'Hyde Park on Hudson'
When Ronald Reagan was asked, as he periodically was, whether his experience as an actor had helped him to be an effective president, he'd genially respond that he didn't know how anybody could do the job without having been an actor. He was, Reagan biographer Lou Cannon believes, kidding on the square, and "Hyde Park on Hudson" amusingly demonstrates how important performance was for another head of state.
