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.
