Synopsis

T.S. Spivet is a ten-year-old cartographer and inventor who lives on a remote ranch in Montana with his cowboy father and scientist mother. After he comes up with a perpetual motion machine, he receives a call inviting him to Washington to receive a prestigious award from the Smithsonian Institute – who have no idea that he’s still only a child. Leaving a note for his parents, he boards a freight train and starts a cross-country adventure. The richly coloured film has been adapted from Reif Larsen’s novel with quirky charm and an undertow of melancholy by Jean-Pierre Jeunet, the director who also brought us much-loved movie Amelie.
