Synopsis
Colin Firth stars in this biopic of famous literary editor Max Perkins, which centers on his personal and professional relationship with eccentric author Thomas Wolfe (Jude Law). As Wolfe becomes consumed with his lengthy novels and begins to alienate his lover Aline Bernstein (Nicole Kidman), Perkins struggles to reel in his talent in order to deliver another best-seller for Scribner Publishing during the 1930s. Laura Linney, Guy Pearce, and Dominic West co-star in director Michael Grandage's debut feature film.

Movie Critics
A.V. Club
"First-time helmer Michael Grandage is an actor’s director in the Sidney Lumet vein, forgoing visual razzle-dazzle in deference to capturing his actors’ performances from the most effective distances."
A.V. Club (9 Jun 2016, )
Boston Globe
"[I]t’s an intriguing study of the personalities and torturous process behind some of the early 20th century’s great writing."
Tom Russo (16 Jun 2016, )

3 stars out of 4 -- "Perkins is played with reserve, hidden warmth, and scrupulous intelligence by Colin Firth..."
