The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet

by suu4leaf

It does not smell American – that was my first impression of The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet. By the time I realised that it actually smelled like my favourite Amelie, it also appeared to me that this film was by none other than that same eccentric French director. But I was disappointed – it is meant to be a cute story with a little bit of dark side to it, but the drawback is, unfortunately, the little T.S. Spivet. It is the wrong boy. It feels like Amelie is being played by Sophie Marceau. Well, something like that.
