Curtis Roosevelt: Movie Review: Hyde Park on Hudson
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
The film Hyde Park on Hudson (also entitled The Royal Weekend in some foreign markets) may not make as much money for its producers as they expected. It was severely criticized here in the States where it was released last November. After viewing the film, it is obvious to me that making money was its sole objective. If it had been a big box-office success it would reveal what an appetite we have for sex -- and what disregard we have for historical accuracy. Historical novels, plays and cinema are my favorites. But there has to be some reasonable engagement with real history behind them. This film has none. The weekend the king and queen of England came to visit my family's home in Hyde Park in the summer of 1939 is very well recorded. It was a historical moment for them as well as for my grandparents, President and Mrs. Roosevelt. The film does not take advantage of this documentation, not even the voluminous reporting by the press. Instead the screenwriter extracts ...

Curtis Roosevelt: Austerity? Stimulus? Or Happiness?
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Ordinarily the words "austerity and "stimulus" are used to describe a person's character and behavior. But now the words describe two divergent rescue policies for nations stricken with economic woes as Greece, Spain, Italy, Portugal and Ireland are today. These words also symbolize certain political leaders. "Austerity" rhymes with Angela Merkel and Herbert Hoover. "Stimulus" rhymes with Franklin Roosevelt and François Hollande. But both words can lose their meaning when used for political ends. For example, Pierre Moscovici, the French minister of finance, was adamant last month: "I reject the idea of austerity in this country." The reasons for Mr. Moscovici's severe comment are plain enough. Politics required it; France is not willing to follow Germany, especially with Chancellor Merkel so firmly wedded to austerity. Au contraire, the president of France advocates stimulus. But in neither case is it clear exactly what the chancellor or the president mean by these term ...
