A feature film with an all-star cast that includes Colin Firth and Jude Law is to screen for a third time in the Tradewinds Auditorium of the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute.

Genius, which also stars Nicole Kidman, Laura Linney, Guy Pearce and Dominic West, will screen on Sunday at 3pm.

The film is a stirring drama about the complex friendship and transformative professional relationship between the world-renowned book editor Maxwell Perkins (Firth) — who discovered F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway — and the larger-than-life literary giant Thomas Wolfe (Law). Their professional relationship lasted less than a decade, but its impact would resound on both men’s lives until their deaths.

Based on the biography Max Perkins: Editor of Genius by Pulitzer Prize-winner A Scott Berg, the film is rated PG (Parental Guidance Advised for some thematic elements and suggestive content) by Bermuda’s Broadcasting Commissioners.

Tickets are on sale now at the Oceans Gift Shop, BUEI, or by calling 294-0204. A trailer of the film can be viewed at www.bermudadocs.com.
