Bill Murray FDR Flick Highlights Santa Fe Film Fest Line-Up
By Kathaleen Roberts / Journal Staff Writer on Thu, Nov 15, 2012


POSTED AT: 6:10 pm
The 13th Annual Santa Fe Film Festival kicks off Dec. 6 with Bill Murray’s take on FDR in “Hyde Park on the Hudson,” according to a listing of films unveiled Thursday.


Bill Murray is Franklin D. Roosevelt in “Hyde Park On The Hudson.”
The four-day festival will include “Any Day Now,” starring Alan Cumming, and Austria’s “Amour,” this year’s Palme d’Or winner at Cannes.

“Hyde Park on the Hudson” pairs Murray with Laura Linney in the British comedy/drama.

“Bill Murray plays FDR and Laura Linney is a guest on the Hudson, where they are hosting the king and queen,” festival executive director Diane Schneier Perrin said. The movie was directed by Roger Mitchell.

Razor's Edge is particularly painful - it's a remake of a Tyrone Power drama from a book by book by W. Somerset Maugham. It was a passion project of Murray's when he had just attained superstardom from goofy comedies. He was compelled to ham it up with jarring, out-of-place Bill Murray schtick in the middle of a stodgy drama.

Neither Ghostbusters 2 or Wild Things were bad movies. Take my two cents and fuck yourselves. :action-sm

Murray's film characters should always be assholes; he seems to excel at it.
