L'Extravagant voyage du jeune et prodigieux T.S. Spivet


Jean-Pierre Jeunet' next film is out now (according to imdb). Amelie, Mic Macs, Delicatessan etc.

I've heard nothing at all about this anywhere. I'm a big fan of his French language films but this isn't in French although, it's set partly in Canada.

Brief synopsis

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's based on a novel but Jeunet has screenwriter credits.


Having watched the trailer, it looks a little like a road movie and reminded me slightly of David Lynch's The Straight Story. It's not at my local cinema :(
