The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet is a mouthful of a title directed by French filmmaker Jean-Pierre Jeunet. The movie is adapted from the book The Selected Works of T.S. Spivet by Reif Larsen about a boy genius who finds himself journeying across America from Montana to Washington DC after learning he’s won a prestigious award from the Smithsonian Institute. While the film was officially released in 2013, it barely made a splash in theaters in the United States thanks to The Weinstein Company, who wanted to make edits to the film that Jeunet refused to make and they ended up not supporting the film. It’s a shame the film didn’t get its chance in the theaters since it was filmed in 3D and really deserves a theater experience instead of just the streaming services it now languishes in. If you enjoyed Jeunet’s film Amelie, then you’ll definitely feel the same whimsical spirit in T.S. Spivet.
