The story of Genius follows the story of Southern-American writer Thomas Wolfe (Jude Law) and his connections with New Yorker Maxwell Perkins (Colin Firth), the publisher. Perkins had already previously published works by the great American writers Ernest Hemingway (Dominic West) and F. Scott Fitzgerald (Guy Pearce). The story also follows the almost “romantic” affair between Wolfe and Perkins.
Genius is a British-American biographical drama film directed by Michael Grandage and written by John Logan, based on the 1978 National Book Award-winner Max Perkins: Editor of Genius by A. Scott Berg. The film stars Colin Firth, Jude Law, Nicole Kidman, Dominic West and Guy Pearce. It was selected to compete for the Golden Bear at the 66th Berlin International Film Festival.
