Wired Contest: ‘Hyde Park On Hudson’ $25 Gift Card Giveaway!

Hyde Park on Hudson has hit theaters and Allie Is Wired is giving away one $25 American Express Gift Card for a fun night at the movies!

The film, presented by Focus Features, stars Academy Award nominees Bill Murray and Laura Linney.

Hyde Park on Hudson is an excellent film not just for you history buffs, but for anyone who enjoys great cinema!

In June 1939, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (Bill Murray) and his wife Eleanor (Olivia Williams) 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 – the first-ever visit of a reigning English monarch to America.

With Britain facing imminent war with Germany, the Royals are desperately looking to FDR for support. But international affairs must be juggled with the complexities of FDR’s domestic establishment, as wife, mother, and mistresses all conspire to make the royal weekend an unforgettable one.

Seen through the eyes of Daisy (Laura 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.
