Genius

Genius is based on A. Scott Berg's book about Max Perkins (1884-1947), a well-known and highly respected editor of Scribner's publishing house in New York. Perkins discovered and worked with giants in literature like Thomas Wolfe, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway. Genius, theater director Michael Grandage's debut film, depicts the friendship that emerged between Perkins and Wolfe when they worked with the script to Wolfe's first book, Look homeward, Angel. The script was originally 5,000 pages and Perkins demanded that it be significantly reduced. Together they scratched 90,000 words and the book was a great success.
