The Young And Prodigious T.S. Spivet Reviews

June 5, 2019
It's an enchanting, imaginative film that is at times pure enjoyment, one you can watch with childlike, eye-popping wonder.

The Young and Prodigious T.S Spivet tries nobly to incorporate old Hollywood style into a modern 3D extravaganza, but its absence of sincere human emotion means it fails miserably.

I simply can't recommend it. Too meandering, too dull; and not even saved by the glorious Helena Bonham Carter.

Jeunet never finds a matching aesthetic, shooting in an over-saturated 3D palette and doubling down on forced Americana, although most of the film was shot in BC and Alberta. It just doesn't work.

Like cross-breeding a chihuahua with a Jack Russell, the result may be doubly cute, but also doubly annoying.

[The film] is more twee than the Pinterest board for a Portland wedding. It's more twee than Michel Gondry's Tumblr. It's more twee than Wes Anderson and Zoe Kazan dancing to a C86 mixtape.

TS Spivet looks wacky but is, in fact, purely bland. Films like this work best if you ignore the dialogue. Bring ear buds and you'll be fine.

Some people love this kind of thing. For me it's like drinking melted chocolate, lemon juice and bleach.

Who or what is a T. S. Spivet?

Jeunet's films more and more resemble Hallmark greetings cards.

Though a film that will certainly stay with you, it's difficult to know exactly who this film is aimed at, and what is to be taken away from proceedings.

Despite a strong start, The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet eventually fizzles out and ends up as a wholly mediocre film.
