The “story” of Roger Michell’s new film, Hyde Park on Hudson, derives from the personal letters of Daisy (Laura Linney), the nominal protagonist who happens to have been a distant cousin of President Franklin Roosevelt (Bill Murray).
Felix Bush (Robert Duvall) is that old coot that every rural community used to have. 'Get Low,' based in part on the true story of a legendary Tennessee loner from the 1930s, starts with a fever dream, a house afire and a figure, a man who dives from an upper-story window and staggers off as the house continues to burn. It's a pleasure to watch Duvall engaged with old pros like Sissy Spacek and Bill Murray. Grade: B.
