We went to Michigan over the long President’s Day weekend to visit Jason’s family (his mother starts chemo tomorrow for stage four tonsil cancer). Gage came back with a cold so two days (so far) with mom at home. Today we did some George Washington activities since it’s his birthday.
I don’t watch a lot of historical films, unless Jason makes me, but there have been a few over the years that have stood out for me because I loved the Presidential portrayal.
I loved Bruce Greenwood as JFK in Thirteen Days.
I thought Bill Murray was a surprisingly good FDR in Hyde Park on Hudson.
I LOVED Robin Williams as Teddy Roosevelt in Night at the Museum.
And, of course, Daniel Day-Lewis is tough to beat as Lincoln in Lincoln.
Is there a President in the movies that stands out for you?
