The Young And Prodigious T.S. Spivet Reviews

January 1, 2016
The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet is the perfect 3D vehicle and Jeunet takes full advantage, offering a feast of amusing visual flourishes suited to the book's playfulness.

The quirky charm, visual wit and melancholy undertow of Reif Larsen's The Selected Works of T.S. Spivet translate joyously to the screen in Jean-Pierre Jeunet's The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spite.

Even at its zippiest ... The Young And Prodigious T.S. Spivet is infused with a pervasive sense of melancholy and loss, with a family that seems as damaged as they are lovably quirky.

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

A challenging film that adults might enjoy but one that is likely to leave younger audiences bewildered.

Adapted from a novel by Reif Larsen, The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet is an embrace of the telling detail and the off-kilter, singular vision of a child.

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.

A film that only someone like Jeunet could get away with, a Disney-like adventure which harks back to 'Huckleberry Finn' but which also seethes with dark sentiment towards the modern world.
