The Young & Prodigious T.S. Spivet

From the director of 'Amélie'

“Jean-Pierre Jeunet's adaptation of Reif Larsen's book The Selected Works of TS Spivet takes gleeful visual pleasure in the tale of a young genius from Montana who runs away to Washington to receive a Smithsonian Institute award after apparently inventing a perpetual motion machine. Jeunet harks back to his own experiments with a View-Master as an eight-year-old, cutting and rearranging frames to construct his first homemade movies, uncovering in the process the secrets of the projected image.

“With its deliberately over-bright palette and imposing semi-steampunk vistas (the train ride to Washington moves from sweeping rural views to groaning industrial landscapes), TS Spivet has plenty to dazzle the eye, with diagrams and illustrations floating from the screen as our young hero's imagination dissects the world around him. In the title role Kyle Catlett (looking like a cross between Johnny Rotten and Macaulay Culkin) blends adult intelligence and childish innocence with ease, while Helena Bonham Carter and Judy Davis vie for supremacy as carefully counterbalanced (non)maternal rivals.”
