The Young and Prodigious Spivet

Late last year we got our first look at The Young and Prodigious Spivet, a family film based on The Selected Works of T.S. Spivet, the debut novel by American author Reif Larsen. Jean-Pierre Jeunet (Amelie, Micmacs) co-wrote and directs the film which follows a 12-year old mapmaker named T.S. Spivet, who lives on a ranch in Montana, as he receives a prestigious award and accepts it, hitch-hiking on a freight train for the acceptance speech in Washington D.C. Kyle Catlett ("The Following") leads the film which also features Helena Bonham Carter, Judy Davis and more. It looks original and quite charming Watch!

Here's the first trailer for Jean-Pierre Jeunet's The Young and Prodigious Spivet from YouTube:

The Young and Prodigious Spivet is directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet, who also co-wrote the film with his Amelie and Micmacs writer Guillaume Laurant. A 12-year-old cartographer (Kyle Catlett of "The Following") secretly leaves his family's ranch in Montana where he lives with his cowboy father and scientist mother and travels across the country on board a freight train to receive an award at the Smithsonian Institute. Niamh Wilson, Jakob Davies, Helena Bonham Carter, Judy Davis, Robert Maillet and Callum Keith Rennie star in the film which doesn't have a release date in the United States yet. Stay tuned for more.
