Molly the Cat's ABC Wednesday Movie for the Letter Y


The Missus Lady is at a stage in her life where any story that has a combination of sweetness, magnificence, and wonder gets her crying. She was tearing up as we watched the preview of today's movie to recall what it was all about. Oh, my Missus Lady, purrrrrrrrrr.

The Young and Prodigious T. S. Spivet (2013)
Setting: Montana

T. S. Spivet is an amazingly brilliant 10-year old boy who is into science. He lives on a ranch in Montana with his mother, an entomologist, his dad, a cowboy, his teenage sister, who wants to be Miss America one day, and Layton, his twin brother.

T. S. is so gifted that the Smithsonian Institute wants to give him an award in Washington D.C. for his invention of a perpetual motion machine. Of course the institution think that T. S. is an adult and of course his family members are so self-absorbed that they don't notice when T. S. leaves the house one night.

How does T. S. get to Washington D.C.? Who helps him on his quest? When the museum people see that T. S. is a child, will they still give him the prize? Do Mom, Dad, and Sister ever wake up from their obsessions? And, what's the story about Layton?

    1. I think it was released first in Canada and England before the U.S. The photography was gorgeous.
