Warm Springs: HBO film
Warm Springs tells the story of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's experience being afflicted with polio. FDR is portrayed as a self-indulgent punk who is humbled and then transformed into a genuinely loving and compassionate figure through his experience helping other polio victims in rural Georgia.
Eleanor Roosevelt grows along FDR. She goes from being somewhat indifferent to his political career to someone willing to get outside her comfort zone to advance her husband's interests. She is proud, but also ambitious. Initially she sides with FDR's mother that spending FDR's trust fund to buy Warm Springs is a waste.
