Audience Reviews for The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet

  • Jul 15, 2014
    A visually gorgeous fable (even the 3D is amazing) that Jeunet really knew how to make entirely believable, but still it feels like a first draft with structural problems and in need of a better treatment. Besides, Catlett is pretty terrible at times, while only Carter and Davis stand out.
