But, to his happy amazement, his novel, which was to become “Look Homeward, Angel,” was accepted for publication. The only trouble was that it was overlong (by 300 pages) and had to be reduced. Although reluctant to see his poetic prose trimmed, Wolfe agreed and was helped by Perkins, who had become a true friend, with the result that it instantly became a favorite with the critics and a best seller. Success was even greater in 1935 when “Of Time and the River” appeared, but the fight for reducing Wolfe’s logorrheic written expression had been even harder, with the novel originally at 5,000 pages. Perkins managed to cut 90,000 words from the book, and with bitterness ultimately taking its toll, the relationships between the two men gradually deteriorated. Wolfe did not feel grateful to Perkins any longer but had started resenting him for owing his success to him.
Plot: New York in the 1920s. Max Perkins, a literary editor is the first to sign such subsequent literary greats as Ernest Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald. When a sprawling, chaotic 1,000-page manuscript by an unknown writer falls into his hands, Perkins is convinced he has discovered a literary genius.

Observe a great editor work with a great writer.
“O lost, and by the wind grieved, ghost, come back again.” ― Thomas Wolfe, Look Homeward, Angel

Max Perkins (Colin Firth) was the genius Scribner’s magazine editor, who helped Hemingway, Fitzgerald, and Wolfe become iconic American writers. The watchable Genius, directed by Michael Grandage with a sure understanding of drama, is mostly Thomas Wolfe’s (Jude Law) story. The taciturn Max provides the necessary guidance to make sure the book belongs to the writer while Max delivers “good books into the hands of readers.”

Although the film is engrossingly placed in Perkin’s pv, Wolfe dominates through his exuberant personality and unending energy. While Firth plays Perkins as the conservative but imaginative editor, Law is the reason to see the film, a brilliant acting turn reminiscent of his over-the-top Dom Hemingway. Law simply has never been better than as Wolfe.

The sepia look of the film is appropriate to the 1929 setting of NYC, and Nicole Kidman as his other muse, Aline Bernstein, is memorably smart and vulnerable when it comes to dealing with manic Wolfe. Although Laura Linney as Louise Perkins is lost in spotty, low energy appearances, her general good cheer carries nicely for a Perkins of whom the audience has grown fond.

Because I am always seeking a biography that will show the creative labors of artists, Genius satisfies me when Perkins and Wolfe struggle over the manuscripts. After experiencing Genius, I have seen two sterling examples.

Brilliant! lives up to the title!!
Once again, based on a book I will likely never read, Genius is about the beautiful bromance Thomas Wolfe had with his editor, Maxwell Perkins.

I love Jude law in this motion picture. He shows up on the screen and you see his face. Then he starts talking like Tom Wolfe and he’s like a completely different person with that accent controlling the vibe. I’ve seen very few films in which the actor has transformed so completely on the screen ( first thing that comes to mind is Anna Karenina). Great performance.

Colin Firth was a little more silent but deadly. He mostly looked on as Jude Law exploded on the big screen, but Firth did have some pretty amusing moments as Max Perkins who gets to feel alive helping to develop the story Wolfe is working on.

Nicole Kidman is still a very beautiful woman. She plays Wolfe’s wife, Aline Bernstein who realizes she loosing Wolfe to the male bonding happening with Perkins. This first becomes relevant with a conversation Bernstein has with Louise Saunders who’s Perkins wife, played by Laura Linney (another attractive woman). At first the run in they have seemed confusing, but you start see quickly what they are talking about as the two men become engulf in making Wolfe’s novels brilliant.

Guy Pearce has a small role in the movie as F. Scott Fitzgerald that’s a pretty intense performance. Dominic West also does a small cameo- like performance as Ernest Hemingway

I love the art direction of the film. It places you right in the period. It did not feel at all like CGI or blue screen, I could be wrong , but either Hollywood got ridiculous good at it or there are places in the UK that look like that period.

Genius is a fun film thanks the great acting chops of Jude Law, who nails it.
