Making the Grades
Release Date: 7 December 2012
Because we only review G, PG, and PG-13 movies at Parent Previews we did not review this title. For your convenience, we have provided some brief information about the film’s synopsis and content.
Synopsis: When Franklin Delano Roosevelt (Bill Murray) invites the King and Queen of England (Samuel West and Olivia Williams) to America, he hopes to build a better relationship between the two countries. The visit also begins a more intimate relationship between the President and his distant cousin Margaret Stuckley (Laura Linney).
