Oscar season is upon us, which means lots of prestigious biographies of powerful or famous people. After this weekend, there will be three such movies vying for your ticket-buying dollar: Daniel Day-Lewis in Steven Spielberg's surprising smash "Lincoln," Anthony Hopkins as the master of suspense in "Hitchcock" and, starting on Friday, Bill Murray (of all people), playing Franklin D. Roosevelt in "Hyde Park on Hudson." True to form, Roosevelt ain't 'fraid of no ghost. "Hyde Park on Hudson" dramatizes the President's activity right before the United States entered World War II, focusing largely on the time he spent at his country estate -- which he called Hyde Park on Hudson -- as well as the intimate relationship he forged with a distant cousin named Margaret Suckley (Laura Linney). Should you be interested in this dewy historical recreation or are you better served by one of the other biographies currently playing? »
