You've got to check out this fantastically wonderful new trailer for Jean-Pierre Jenet's upcoming film The Young and Prodigious Spivet. The 3D movie is an adaptation of Reif Larsen's The Selected Works of T.S. Spivet. For those of you not familiar with Jenet's work, he directed the amazing film Amelie, and as you'll see in this trailer it's got that same visually charming tone that I enjoy seeing from the director.
The movie stars Helena Bonham Carter, Kathy Bates, Judy Davis, Callum Keith Rennie, Dominique Pinon, and Kyle Catlett. Here's the synopsis:
A 12-year-old cartographer 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.
The movie will be released in France in mid-October. There's no word yet on when the rest of us will get to see it. Thanks to Twitch!
