R-rated movie essentially about adultery, and lots of it.

This movie is based on actual letters found by a distant cousin to President Franklin Roosevelt. This movie is about their adulterous affair, Eleanor's adultery with multiple men, and the adulteries of members of the President's staff. Far from a moral tale about how such activity eventually destroys marriages, children, love and life, it presents this way of living as OK, without consequences. Not the thing we want to be teaching our children.

FDR & his mistresses

From the back of the box it sounded like a worthwhile glimpse into a crucial period in US/UK relations; this film is actually about FDR and his mistresses. I found it to be extremely disappointing and eventually, about three-quarters of the way through, I gave up watching.
