• Laura Linney and Bill Murray in Hyde Park on Hudson

Bill Murray takes another swipe at Oscar glory this weekend with Hyde Park on Hudson, playing Franklin Delano Roosevelt. My review is embargoed until Thursday, but I notice that the odds-on favorite for best actor at this point is Daniel Day-Lewis for Lincoln, with Murray coming in 16th. Though Roosevelt is often ranked just under Lincoln among our greatest presidents, he hasn’t had nearly as good a movie career as Abe, probably because he’s confined to a wheelchair when all the action goes down. I’m not holding my breath for “Franklin Roosevelt: Vampire Hunter.”
