Movie Info

Joseph Sargent directs Warm Springs, a biopic of the longest-serving president in American history, Franklin D. Roosevelt. Kenneth Branagh portrays the man who, even though he had lost the use of his legs because of polio, served as Commander in Chief during the Great Depression and the beginning of World War II. Cynthia Nixon portrays his strong-willed, loyal wife Eleanor Roosevelt. The title of the film comes from the name of the place where the president was able to recharge his batteries when stress would begin to take its toll on his already compromised body. The supporting cast includes Oscar-winner Kathy Bates; David Paymer, and Tim Blake Nelson.more

Fantastically acted, very inspiring, moving story of FDR's struggle back from polio and the difference Warm Springs made to his life and the difference his involvement make in the treatment of the disease.

Super Reviewer


This movie was movingy well written and well acted. Kenneth Branagh's performance was especially poignant in his portayal of FDR during his most difficult and vulnerable moments. Cynthia Nixon was surprisingly good in the role of Eleanor. I loved the period setting and character actors, which added to the movie's quality. I highly recommend this movie to anyone interested in an entertaining depiction of a lesser known moment American history.

While corny, I found this film to be compelling. Kenneth Branagh pulled off Roosevelt so effectively that I forgot it was him in the role.
