Tuesday 12th August 2014
From the talented director Jean-Pierre Jeunet (Amelié) comes a heart-warming tale of one boy's determination to pursue a career in science. Adapted from the novel The Selected Works of T.S Spivet by Reif Larsen, this childhood adventure is brought to life as The Young and Prodigious T.S Spivet arrives on DVD and download on 6th October 2014 from Entertainment One.
The film stars Kyle Catlett as he makes his film debut as the young and gifted T.S. Spivet; BAFTA award winning Helena Bonham Carter (The King's Speech, Alice in Wonderland) as caring mother Dr. Clair; Callum Keith Rennie (The Killing, Californication) as Spivet's cowboy father; and Judy Davis (To Rome With Love, The Starter Wife) as undersecretary of the Smithsonian Museum G.H. Jibsen.
T.S. Spivet lives on a remote ranch in Montana with his parents, his sister Gracie and his brother Layton. A gifted child with a passion for science, he has invented a perpetual motion machine, for which he has been awarded the prestigious Baird Prize by the Smithsonian Institution in Washington. He leaves a note for his family and hops on a freight train to make his way across the United States and receive his prize. But no one there suspects that the lucky winner is a ten-year-old child with a very dark secret...
The importance of family shines through in this fun filled adventure as The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet arrives on DVD and digital download on 6th October 2014 courtesy of eOne.
