In the late 1920s, Maxwell Perkins (Colin Firth)--the Scribner’s editor who’d helped shape the literary output of F. Scott Fitzgerald (Guy Pearce) and Ernest Hemingway (Dominic West)--received a submission from the gifted but undisciplined Southerner Thomas Wolfe (Jude Law). The complexity of the mentorship and bond that developed--and would ultimately fissure due to the temperaments of the author and his patron/paramour Aline Bernstein (Nicole Kidman)--is evocatively limned in this period detail-rich offering. Laura Linney, Vanessa Kirby also star. 104 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital 5.1; Subtitles: English, Spanish.
