Bill Murray portrays FDR — yes, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt — in Hyde Park on Hudson, which hits theaters in December.

The film takes place in 1939, on the eve of World War II, when the King and Queen of England come to visit Roosevelt at his family’s upstate New York estate.

It explores political intrigue and complex personal relationships, but more than anything else, it’s Bill Murray playing FDR!

Laura Linney and Olivia Williams also star.
