Genius Movie Quotes

Updated 6 Nov 2017 301 votes 134 voters 7.4k views

Genius movie quotes tell the story of when writer Thomas Wolfe was given his shot at success by book editor Maxwell Perkins. The biographical drama was directed by Michael Grandage using a screenplay John Logan adapted from the book Max Perkins: Editor of Genius by A. Scott Berg. Genius opened in theaters on June 10, 2016.

In Genius, writer Thomas Wolfe (Jude Law) arrives in the New York office of book editor Maxwell Perkins (Colin Firth), who had previously worked with Ernest Hemingway (Dominic West) and F. Scott Fitzgerald (Guy Pearce), expecting Perkins to reject his book, Look Homeward, Angel. But to Wolfe's surprise, Perkins wanted to inform Wolfe that the book would be published.

What follows is perhaps a bromance between Wolfe and Perkins as the two spent more time with each other, including trying to edit a 5,000-page take on America that Wolfe had written, than they spend with their significant others (Nicole Kidman and Laura Linney), something that impacts all of them in ways they never expected.

Genius opened in theaters with other great summer 2016 films including Now You See Me 2, Me Before You, Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows.
