Rennie, who TV fans may recognize from his stint on "Battlestar Galactica," will play Ray Steele, who Ana's mother Carla (played by Jennifer Ehle) married after Ana's biological father died. Ana took Ray's last name, though the marriage didn't last; actor Dylan Neal was recently cast to play Carla's current husband (and Ana's new stepfather), Bob.
Ray's character also provides a link to Ana's non-Christian love interest, Jose (Victor Rasuk), who's the source of some jealousy that fuels a few of Christian and Ana's S&M sessions. Ray and Jose's father served in the Army together.

In a satisfying confluence of source material and director, Jean-Pierre Jeunet brings his signature abundance to bear on the richly stuffed adventures of Tecumseh Sparrow Spivet, Reif Larsen’s pint-sized Montana whiz kid whose genius gets him to the Smithsonian. “The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet” is the perfect 3D vehicle and Jeunet takes full advantage, offering a feast of amusing visual flourishes suited to the book’s playfulness. Like “Hugo,” however, guessing the target audience will be tricky. An Imax 3D French rollout in mid-October could help the Weinstein Company gauge how to market their yet-to-be-dated Stateside release.
Campaign strategists will need to figure out whether the kid protag and the pic’s visualization of a precocious child’s vivid imagination jive with the very adult expletives used by Judy Davis’ Smithsonian undersecretary, Ms. Jibsen. Given the repeated cuss words, it’s likely the producers are hoping for a mid-teen and older crowd, »

In the film, an adaptation of Reif Larsen's 2009 debut novel "The Selected Works of T.S. Spivet," 12-year-old inventor T.S. Spivet sets out on a solo adventure to Washington, D.C. after winning a Smithsonian Institute contest. Kyle Catlett, best known for his recurring role on the Fox serial killer series "The Following," stars as T.S. -- a "gifted child and scientist," as he describes himself in the following trailer.
"This trip scares me, but that's that. I'm leaving tomorrow for Washington, D.C.," the boy genius says before setting off on his incredible journey to claim his prize.

You've got to check out this fantastically wonderful new trailer for Jean-Pierre Jenet's upcoming film The Young and Prodigious Spivet. The 3D movie is an adaptation of Reif Larsen's The Selected Works of T.S. Spivet. For those of you not familiar with Jenet's work, he directed the amazing film Amelie, and as you'll see in this trailer it's got that same visually charming tone that I enjoy seeing from the director.
A 12-year-old cartographer secretly leaves his family's ranch in Montana where he lives with his cowboy father and scientist mother and travels across the country on board a freight train to receive an award at the Smithsonian Institute.
The movie will be released in France in mid-October. There's no word yet on when the rest of us will get to see it. »

If you have two eyes and a beating heart, then by the time that this article is over and you’ve soaked up the trailer for Jean-Pierre Jenuet‘s The Young and Prodigious Spivet, you’ll probably be holding back a few sniffles. My advice is to just deal with it head-on and accept that stories of precocious little inventors following their dreams in a world crafted by the director who brought us Amelie can best even the manliest of men. There, there. T.S. Spivet (Kyle Catlett) is a gifted inventor who sets out to leave his family’s eccentric Montana ranch in pursuit of Washington, DC when the Smithsonian Institute wants to give him an award. Dad (Callum Keith Rennie) fancies himself a cowboy, while mom (Helena Bonham Carter) is a naturalist. It seems that no one is quite aware of the level of giftedness T.S. possesses, but »

Director Jean-Pierre Jeunet (Amelie, Delicatessen) has adapted Reif Larson’s debut novel The Selected Works of T.S. Spivet for his latest feature. The story centers on a 12-year-old cartography enthusiast in an eccentric family, who travels across country hidden on board a freight train after being invited to the Smithsonian Institute. The $34 million France-Canadian co-production shot for 72 days, was all filmed in 3D, using the same team who shot Martin Scorsese’s Hugo. Jeunet– whose lengthy filmography includes Delicatessen, Alien Resurrection, and City of Lost Children – delivers his usual trademark style, and so we know from at least a visual standpoint, the film will not disappoint. The cast also includes Helena Bonham Carer as T.S.’s mom, Callum Keith Rennie as his dad, Judy Davis as the head of the Smithsonian, along with Rick Mercer, Niamh Wilson, Robert Maillet and Jakob Davies. Hit the jump to check out the trailer. »
A couple years ago, we reported that director Jean-Pierre Jeunet (Amelie) was set to adapt Reif Larson’s debut novel The Selected Works of T.S. Spivet. The story centers on 12-year-old inventor T.S. Spivet (Kyle Catlett), who embarks on a cross-country adventure from Montana to Washington D.C., after he wins a contest at the Smithsonian Institute. During his journey he learns life lessons from eccentric characters he meets along the way. The trailer is very reminiscent of Amelie with the descriptions and visualizations of the leading characters, and it also looks like it has the same mix of humor and heart. Hit the jump to check out the trailer and images. The film also stars Niamh Wilson, Helena Bonham Carter, Callum Keith Rennie, and Judy Davis. The Young and Prodigious Spivet opens in France on October 16th, and will likely be released in the U.S. sometime in 2014. Trailer via Twitch. »

During the hustle and bustle of the Cannes Film Festival you may have missed it, but Jean-Pierre Jeunet's upcoming 3D English-language film "The Young And Prodigious Spivet" recently dropped a pretty charming trailer and it seemed to impress the right people. Over the weekend, Deadline reported that none other that Harvey Weinstein swooped in to grab the U.S. rights to the picture for his The Weinstein Company and now a few more pics have emerged for the movie. Based on the best-selling novel "The Selected Works Of T.S. Spivet" by Reif Larsen, the film features Helena Bonham-Carter, Callum Keith Rennie, Judy Davis, Kathy Bates, Dominique Pinon with newcomer Kyle Catlett, and it follows a young amateur cartographer, the titular Spivet, who travels cross-country on a freight train to visit the Smithsonian Institute. Of course that is merely the start of an adventure told the way only Jeunet can tell it. »
