JONAH GOLDBERG:: Obama’s ‘fine’ mess

By Jonah Goldberg –

The 1990 Italian film “Everybody’s Fine” is one of the most depressing films I’ve ever seen. Starring the late Marcello Mastroianni, it’s the story of an old man who tells his wife he’s going to visit their grown kids. According to their letters the kids are doing great, but he’d like to see for himself.

It turns out that the kids are all doing badly, and the whole trip is drenched in nostalgia and regret for what might have been. When the father gets home, he can’t bring himself to tell his wife the truth, even though — the audience discovers — she’s been dead and buried for years. In the last scene, we see the old man at his wife’s grave, reassuring her, “Everybody’s fine.”
