Review
Following an early and promising political career, Franklin Roosevelt, the only US president to be elected three times, was stricken with polio at 39 years of age. This film follows his struggle with paralysis, the refuge he took in an obscure and run-down Georgia health spa, the place in which he found the opportunity for peace, solace and the will to continue, and the family pressure to return to public life and politics. Perhaps the most significant battle he fought with the stigma of paralysis was not in the eyes of others but in his own mind.
