Watch: Whimsical New Clip From Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s ‘Young And Prodigious T.S. Spivet’

The Playlist By Charlie Schmidlin | The Playlist June 5, 2014 at 9:22AM

Avid filmgoers likely have a handle already on what emotions director Jean-Pierre Jeunet stirs up, as over distinctive efforts like “Amelie," “The City of Lost Children," and “Delicatessen” he’s fashioned a completely unique perspective that’s not everyone’s cup of tea. But Jeunet’s latest work, “The Young And Prodigious T.S. Spivet," strays into new territory—being entirely family friendly and in 3D for a start—and close to the film’s German premiere and UK release we’ve got a new clip to share.

The Young & Prodigious Spivet

Avid filmgoers likely have a handle already on what emotions director Jean-Pierre Jeunet stirs up, as over distinctive efforts like “Amelie," “The City of Lost Children," and “Delicatessen” he’s fashioned a completely unique perspective that’s not everyone’s cup of tea. But Jeunet’s latest work, “The Young And Prodigious T.S. Spivet," strays into new territory — being entirely family friendly and in 3D for a start — and close to the film’s German premiere and UK release, we have a new clip to share.

Adapted from the novel by Reif Larson, the film also breaks from Jeunet’s wheelhouse by placing the action outside of Europe and places it in rural Montana. The story follows 10-year-old T.S. Spivet (Kyle Catlett), a child prodigy who lives with his scientist mother (Helena Bonham Carter), ranch owner father (Callum Keith Rennie), and two siblings (Niamh Wilson and Jakob Davies). He soon finds reason to leave home as his invention, a perpetual motion machine, wins the Smithsonian Institute’s Baird Prize in Washington; so begins Spivet’s journey to claim his award, even while no one at the Smithsonian realizes they’ve given it to a 10-year-old boy.

A new clip from the film gives a good sense of the whimsical yet sweet tone Jeunet’s aiming for with his latest effort, as Carter explains her work and life philosophy to Spivet, while the young boy questions how his parents got together in the first place. The film has hit a few festivals already, with the latest being the Opening Night selection for the Munich International Film Festival, and it hits UK cinemas on June 13th. No U.S. release date yet, but check out the clip below as we wait for that slot to hopefully arrive soon. [THR/Bleeding Cool]
