THE PROFESSOR AND THE MADMAN (Film Theatrical Release USA 2019)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.6|5.0 Starsìììì

The Professor and the Madman
—unique, refreshing classic—can be easily passed over due to its story. Don’t make that mistake. The movie is well-written, well-presented, and well-acted. Exceptionally good acting by both Mel Gibson and Sean Penn. Terrific watch, exceptionally entertaining.
