T.S. Spivet is 10 years old and lives on a remote ranch in Montana with his family. He is a gifted child with a passion for science and has invented a perpetual motion machine, for which he has been awarded a prestigious prize by the Smithsonian Institution in Washington. He leaves a note for his family and hops a freight train to make his way across the United States to receive his prize. But no one there suspects that the lucky winner is a ten-year-old child with a very dark secret…
Quirky in style and hypnotic to watch, this is a wonderful film – uplifting, imaginative and totally left of centre. If you loved Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s ‘Amelie’, you will also embrace this.
