Human Capital reverts to its original title for the film's North American debut at the Tribeca Film Festival, where it is in competition. The first screening of Paolo Virzì's splendid adaptation is on April 18. Tickets are now on sale.
I was deeply saddened to learn of the death of Joe McGinniss last night. I have been a fan of Joe’s work since I read Fatal Vision soon after it was published. Even though I was a callow undergraduate at the time, I sensed that this was the real thing, a work of immense narrative sweep and relentless integrity. Since then, I have followed Joe as he took on subjects ranging from Ted Kennedy to Italian soccer to Sarah Palin.
Even better, I was lucky enough to be Joe’s friend for the past several years. He was as charming, gracious and entertaining a man as I have ever met, a true friend who once managed to get one of my books shouted out by the commentator during the live broadcast of a Barcelona soccer match.
He will be sorely missed, but he will also be joyously remembered.
