I've recently watched Hyde Park on Hudson and it made me want to know more! I instantly went on to the library website to find a documentary about FDR and found one called FDR. It was fascinating which is interesting for me because I usually don't find history that fascinating. However because I watched the feature film my interest was piqued. Therefore I decided to make a list of historical movies and their corresponding non-fiction subject headings. This way I am set if I ever want to enjoy the combination again or share the experience.
