GENIUS staring Colin Firth and Jude Law as the legendary book editor Maxwell Perkins and the author Thomas Wolf

GENIUS : ......whew!

We went to a press screening of GENIUS director Michael Grandage .. and it reminded me of the time when publications and publishers had full time editors that actually helped writers, THEY STILL EXISTS BUT ARE A VERY ENDANGERED SPECIES .. GENIUS  is a bio-drama about MAXWELL PERKINS a legendary book editor who worked with Fitzgerald, Hemingway and Thomas Wolf .. the film  centers around the relationship between Thomas Wolf (Jude Law)  and Max Perkins (Colin Firth) . While Laura Linney plays Mrs Perkins and Nicole Kidman Wolf's paramour (knockout performance) it is what happens creatively and emotionally between these two characters and the actors playing them that me that had me riveted to the screen.   . Sparks of all kinds fly . TBC  opens June 10th
