Bill Murray plays Franklin Roosevelt in "Hyde Park on Hudson" and the film will be shown at the Dover Public Library as part of its weekly Saturday matinee series.
The movie focuses on the relationship between the president and a distant cousin, Daisy Suckley, who's first called to the Roosevelt home in Hyde Park to provide him companionship and becomes a household fixture as a romance develops.
The main event in "Hyde Park" is the visit of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, whose goal is to obtain FDR's support for Britain in World War II. They seem out of place in the relatively modest Roosevelt home and must be good sports at a picnic featuring Native American entertainment and hot dogs. Murray's performance earned critical praise and a Golden Globe nomination.
The film is rated R and will be shown for free at 2 p.m., Saturday.
