CONTEST: Win a $100 American Express Gift Card from ‘Hyde Park on Hudson’

Bill Murray and Laura Linney star in this true-story drama about President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s weekend with British royalty.

Hyde Park on Hudson is currently playing in theaters nationwide, after a successful limited release throughout December. Golden Globe nominee Bill Murray stars as President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who, in June 1939, hosted the King and Queen of England (Samuel West and Olivia Colman) on their first ever trip to America. We want to make sure you have a chance to see director Roger Michell's drama during its nationwide expansion, so we're giving away a $100 American Express gift card, perfect for a night out at the movies with all the trimmings, and maybe even enough left over for dinner (if you don't live in a big city where tickets for two and a small tub of popcorn can run you close to $100). Read on for details on how you can win big from Franklin Delano Roosevelt!

Academy Award nominees Bill Murray and Laura Linney star in a historical tale that uniquely explores the all-too-human side of one of history's iconic leaders. Blending literate wit and drama, Hyde Park on the Hudson is directed by Roger Michell from a screenplay by Richard Nelson.

In June 1939, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (played by Mr. Murray) 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 (Ms. 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.

Hyde Park on Hudson was released December 7th, 2012 and stars Bill Murray, Laura Linney, Samuel West, Olivia Colman, Elizabeth Marvel, Olivia Williams, Elizabeth Wilson, Martin McDougall. The film is directed by Roger Michell.
