Trailer For Flash of Genius

Movie Preview: Flash of Genius

Honestly, if one were trying to get folks excited about a movie, a good way to fail would be to say it's about the guy who invented the intermittent windshield wiper systems used on cars.

But what if we're told the movie stars Greg Kinnear as the inventor and the lovely Lauren Graham plays his wife? Add to that a real-life David vs. Goliath tale in which Goliath is the auto industry stealing the windshield wiper idea from David, and we're getting toward a movie worth talking about.

With the help of Dave Matthews, the trailer for Flash of Genius is already tugging at my heartstrings, and it looks beautifully shot with that nice soft lighting. While this is definitely a plot we've seen before in different incarnations over the years, I'm still curious about it, especially because the cast is so darn appealing (the movie also features Dermot Mulroney and Alan Alda).

The movie opens Oct. 25. To see the trailer,

In case anyone is interested, the man this movie is based on just died and there's an article in the Washington Post about his life.

I was all jazzed until I read the Dave Matthews part.

I saw this preview right after another Greg Kinnear movie when I saw Mamma Mia. I love Lauren Graham, I just wish she wasn't in a movie where she plays the wife of the main character. I think she should star in her own!

It looks boring. Seriously, a movie about the guy who invented windshield wipers? I love Lauren Graham, but she was also in the disastrous Evan Almighty.

I saw the trailer for this and i could never see myself paying to see this or sneaking in to see this. I might casually watch it when it comes on to HBO.

i agree - i'd watch it based on your description...a movie about a guy who invents windshield wipers sounds a bit boring. I liked the trailer when i saw it last week, and i think it'll be a fun movie to watch.
