Jean-Pierre Jeunet's T.S. Spivet will finally be released in the UK on June 13th. I saw it a few weeks back and rather liked it. It is whimsical and a little meandering – at least at first – but there's real charm here and, ultimately, a little more depth than was originally hinted at.
Talking of which – this clip does seem oddly flat without the 3D, pictorially speaking at least. It should still show you that we're on a fairly typical bearing for Jeunet, despite the American setting.
