The “Movie” Jefferson and Hamilton

Wednesday, December 18, 2013 at 04:44PM

Here, for the web site  “My Book, The Movie,” Ferling dreamcasts an adaptation of his book Jefferson and Hamilton:

 

A movie has been made about Thomas Jefferson (Jefferson in Paris), but none about Alexander Hamilton so far as I know. But is it outlandish to contemplate a movie about their rivalry at the time of the nation’s founding? They were colorful figures and opposites in most respects. They offered competing visions of the shape and character of the new United States. Their intensely partisan struggle polarized the American people in much the same fashion as American politics has been polarized in recent years, and some things that divided them – the size of government, for instance – continue to cause political divisions today.

 You can see the actors that Ferling imagines playing Jefferson and Hamilton, and other leading figures in their lives, at this link:
