Flash of Genius' world premiered at the prestigious Telluride Film Festival, the launching pad for many past Oscar nominees. Juno, The Last King of Scotland, Brokeback Mountain, Walk the Line and Capote are just a few of the films showcased at past Telluride Film Festivals. Early buzz has been positive, with Greg Kinnear's performance singled out as one of his best to date.
Greg Kinnear stars as Robert Kearns, an educator/inventor who came up with the design for intermittent windshield wipers (something we all take for granted now). His dreams of striking gold with his invention are shattered when the auto industry takes his invention without adequately crediting him for his work.
Flash of Genius hopes to wipe up the competition on October 3, 2008.
