The Young and Prodigious T.S Spivet

French visual virtuoso Jean-Pierre Jeunet (City of Lost Children, Amelie) directs this more recent English-language tale of a scientific wunderkind in the USA where it undeservingly fell through the commercial cracks. Time to discover this under seen gem – an extraordinary, unpredictable road movie that embellishes its rites-of-passage tale with enough dazzling visual flourishes to make ‘Hugo’ blush.   Space Place | Sunday 23rd February | 6.30 PM doors | 7PM start | $15 | Bookings recommended
