It’s Downton USA in this frothy account of King George VI’s audience with President Franklin D. Roosevelt on the eve of WW2, when Britain requested America's help in fighting the Nazis. Bill Murray clearly enjoys himself as the eccentric, polio stricken Commander-in-Chief, while Samuel West plays the same stuttering monarch Colin Firth portrayed to Oscar-winning effect in that King's Speech movie. Roger 'Notting Hill' Michell directs while rising national treasure Olivia Colman is on prim, mildly unamused form as Queen Elizabeth (aka the Queen Mum).
