The Roosevelts may be the most influential family in the history of the United States. They are an interesting bunch, that's for sure. Now Ken Burns is telling their story in the way only Ken Burns can tell it with his new documentary The Roosevelts: An Intimate History. These figures represent both bold and worthwhile ideologies and actions as well as unnerving and disconcerting ideologies and actions, or, as the promotional poster says, "Their triumph made history; their tragedies made them human."
