Reel Pieces moderator Annette Insdorf interviews Hugh Grant and director Marc Lawrence about their new comedy, The Rewrite. The two reunite after previous collaborations on Two Weeks Notice, Music and Lyrics, and Did You Hear About the Morgans? The Rewrite is a smart contemporary comedy about a once-successful Hollywood screenwriter who, in desperation, accepts a visiting professorship at an upstate college. Politically incorrect and clueless about how to teach, he gets into scrapes with colleagues played by seasoned players like Allison Janney and J.K. Simmons. More important, he learns a lot from an older student, beautifully played by Marisa Tomei, including romance. Recorded February 11, 2015 at 92nd Street Y.

"It seems safe to say that Capital in the Twenty-First Century, the magnum opus of the French economist Thomas Piketty, will be the most important economics book of the year--and maybe of the decade. Piketty, arguably the world's leading expert on income and wealth inequality, does more than document the growing concentration of income in the hands of a small economic elite. He also makes a powerful case that we’re on the way back to 'patrimonial capitalism,' in which the commanding heights of the economy are dominated not just by wealth, but also by inherited wealth, in which birth matters more than effort and talent," wrote Paul Krugman in The New York Times. Krugman and his fellow Nobel laureate Joseph Stiglitz (author of The Great Divide) join Piketty to discuss the genius of economics. Moderated by MSNBC’s Alex Wagner. Recorded March 4, 2015 at 92nd Street Y.
