The UK branch of Universal Studios will release on Blu-ray director Roger Michell's comedy drama Hyde Park on Hudson (2012), starring Bill Murray, Laura Linney, Samuel West, and Olivia Williams. The release will be available for purchase online and in shops across the country on May 27th.
In June 1939, American president Franklin D Roosevelt (Murray) hosts the British royal family at his country house in upstate New York on their first-ever visit to the United States. King George (West) and his Queen's Consort Elizabeth (Colman) are on a diplomatic mission to secure America's support in the fight against Hitler. Meanwhile, against the backdrop of this historically momentous meeting, the ageing but eternally-philandering Roosevelt finds time to seduce another of his house guests, his demure distant cousin Margaret Stuckley (Linney). Olivia Williams co-stars as the long-suffering Eleanor Roosevelt.
