Trailer: The Young and Prodigious Spivet


The latest from director Jean-Pierre Jeunet

Here is the trailer for The Young and Prodigious Spivet, the latest from Amelie and City of Lost Children director Jean-Pierre Jeunet. The film is an adaptation of the book The Selected Works of T. S. Spivet by Reif Larsen, and stars Helena Bonham Carter, Jeunet regular Dominique Pinon, and Kyle Catlett making his feature film debut in the title role. Here's a synopsis for the film:

A 12-year-old cartographer secretly leaves his family's ranch in Montana where he lives with his cowboy father and scientist mother and travels across the country on board a freight train to receive an award at the Smithsonian Institute.

It looks like a nice bit of whimsy on the road that fits with the stills from the film we shared a few weeks ago, and it's usually pretty amusing to see how directors from another country interpret America.

The Young and Prodigous Spivet will be out in France on October 16th. No word yet on international release dates.
