Warm Springs – Filtered
A look at Franklin D. Roosevelt’s pre-presidency days, from his being diagnosed with polio one year after his unsuccessful bid for the White House as presidential nominee James Cox’s running mate, through his rehabilitation in Warm Springs, Ga., to his nomination of Al Smith for Democratic Presidential candidate in 1928.
This dramatization of Franklin D.Roosevelt’s life shows the years before his presidency and how he came down with polio. It shows his struggles and frustrations in not being able to walk. He goes to Warm Springs, Georgia, where he buys a cabin and stays because he thinks the water there is helping him. He has low self esteem and his wife and therapist try to help him gain confidence to be able to run for president. This is a good movie. The viewer learns about one of our presidents and it teaches viewers that one can overcome anything. I thought there were a few funny parts in the movie. For example, when he is taught him how to drive a car for the first time. This is a dramatic movie based on truth, is wholesome, and is a good film for the whole family.
