      Jay Weissberg Variety The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet is the perfect 3D vehicle and Jeunet takes full advantage, offering a feast of amusing visual flourishes suited to the book's playfulness. Jan 1, 2016 Full Review Jonathan Holland Hollywood Reporter The quirky charm, visual wit and melancholy undertow of Reif Larsen's The Selected Works of T.S. Spivet translate joyously to the screen in Jean-Pierre Jeunet's The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spite. Jan 1, 2016 Full Review Jesse Hassenger AV Club Even at its zippiest ... The Young And Prodigious T.S. Spivet is infused with a pervasive sense of melancholy and loss, with a family that seems as damaged as they are lovably quirky. Rated: B- Aug 6, 2015 Full Review Katie Smith-Wong Flick Feast Overall, The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet is beautiful to watch and will make a star out of young Kyle Catlett. Rated: 3.5/5 Nov 20, 2019 Full Review Cameron Ward One Room With A View While colourfully idyllic in almost every respect, The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet's vision finds itself sadly lacking in overall depth and symbolic relevance. Rated: 3/5 Jun 14, 2019 Full Review Alexa Dalby Dog and Wolf It's an enchanting, imaginative film that is at times pure enjoyment, one you can watch with childlike, eye-popping wonder. Rated: 3/5 Jun 5, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

      Ravi T This was a strange, unique, wholesome movie that I stumbled across. I loved it! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/01/24 Full Review Audience Member It’s a very good movie: real and exciting. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 11/13/23 Full Review John B I enjoyed this one with the family as it was kind of odd & quirky but still entertaining and fun to watch. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 09/13/23 Full Review Alan G Quirky story, but charming. Great performance by the lead. I loved it. Very likeable. Watched a few times. I always love it. (A bit uneven in places, not exactly a smooth flow of scenes). Could have been a lot better, even an award contender, with better continuity and togetherness. Less would have been more. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Raymond T One of the better movies ive seen in the last 2 years. Very interesting character developement, a fun adventure of a kid. Good graphics too. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/03/23 Full Review Vera N This movie definitely took me by surprise. It's quirky, unexpected, beautifully done. I had many laughs and tears when watching it.
