Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.4|5.0 Starsìììì

The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet—very good storyline—works on a simple story that reminds one of The Journey of Natty Gann where a very young person takes charge of a personal future and, without adult permission, travels to their destiny. The film is heart-warming, well written, and worth a watch.


A young Montana boy wins the Smithsonian’s Baird Award and hitchhikes from Montana to Washington, D.C. to claim it.
