Fifth about The Seventh

Hyde Park on Hudson

Hyde Park on Hudson: sometimes choosing an unusual point of view in telling a story has appealing results. The angle, however, must be interesting itself, which is not the case here. This film struggles to find the proper tone, going from light fantasy to straight to caricature within a beat; sadly, it works best exactly at the tone used the least. Visually the inconsistency persists, and the choices certainly do not match the material. The most memorable thing about it is how stiff Laura Linney is: that’s quite a waste.
