Abstract:
"This historical drama is set in 1893, in Menlo Park, New Jersey, where Thomas Edison (Ken Walsh) - the world's greatest inventor - is alone in his lab, obsessed by a vision: "What if I could do for the eye what my favorite invention, the phonograph, does for the ear?" Edison's prototype, the 'Kinetoscope," is destroyed by Jack (Michal Suchanek), a scruffy twelve year-old, desperately fleeing an angry truant officer when he crashes into the Wizard's lab. Edison's first inclination is to throw the brat back to the wolves, but, because he recognizes something of himself in the boy, he covers for Jack and takes him in. Jack becomes a kind of Sorcerer's Apprentice to Edison, sharing the adventure, the late hours and the unrelenting energy of the Wizard of Menlo Park, as they pursue the dream of the motion picture"--Container.
