The Young And Prodigious T.S. Spivet (3D)
Filmfest 2014

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 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 film) is about how the imagination is the best instrument for making sense of the world. The film's job is to make that imagination, in this case T.S. Spivet's, credible and engaging, and Jeunet succeeds beautifully."
