Summer Film Series - The Young & Prodigious T.S. Spivet

International film is returning to BREC this January! Our Summer Film Series will run every Saturday from 9 January to 6 February, presenting the best of award-winning and foreign films from the past few years.

The Young & Prodigious T.S. Spivet (M)

105 minutes ~ Action/Adventure/Drama ~ USA

Curated for the Summer Film Series by CinefestOZ

T.S. Spivet lives on a ranch in Montana with his mother who is obsessed with the morphology of beetles, his father (a cowboy born a hundred years too late) and his 14 year-old sister who dreams of becoming Miss America. T.S. is a 10 year-old prodigy with a passion for cartography and scientific inventions. One day, he receives an unexpected call from the Smithsonian museum telling him that he is the winner of the very prestigious Baird prize for his discovery of the perpetual motion machine and that he is invited to a reception in his honor where he is expected to give a speech. Without telling anyone, he sets out on a freight train across the U.S.A. to reach Washington DC.

Pre-order a cheese platter for $18 for two people (or $28 for two including glass of wine each), sit back and enjoy some fantastic cinematic offerings in our Wellington Suite. Orders close 12pm the day prior to each screening. Platters can be pre-purchased in person at the Box Office or by by calling 1300 661 272.

REVIEWS

"The famously flamboyant and creative French filmmaker Jean-Pierre Jeunet is in inspired form with the visual design of this movie."

Leigh Paatsch, Herald Sun

"Even at its zippiest ... The Young And Prodigious T.S. Spivet is infused with a pervasive sense of melancholy and loss, with a family that seems as damaged as they are lovably quirky."

Jesse Hassenger, AV Club
