My favorite historical miniseries!
30 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are so many GREAT things about this miniseries...historical accuracy down to exactly the gown Eleanor wore when she married Franklin...the sets are so unbelievably accurate and lavish, they are a visual treat in themselves! Having read "My Parents" by James Roosevelt and the title book by Joseph Lash, the movie really is as it all actually happened, as much as time constraints would allow. I will never forget the performances by Jane Alexander and Edward Herrmann. To this day, because of this, they are two of my favorite contemporary actors. It's hard to believe that the film interior shots were not done at the respective Roosevelt homes...again, they have been duplicated to beyond perfection! And last but NOT least, the heart-felt music by John Barry. I think this soundtrack is one of his finest works...I wish it were available on CD!He certainly should have won the Emmy for it!! A must see for history buffs, and just anyone who loves the story of a romance and the turns it takes throughout life.
