A Wonderful Show With An Excellent Performance By Karl Pruner
22 March 2001 | by IanFarveSee all my reviews

While having a great deal of fun, this film provides the viewer with a delightful sense of what Isaac Newton was really all about in terms of his dedication and passion for science. A Wonderful show, nicely balanced to hold the attention of both the younger and older viewer.

This show has a great deal of heart and a remarkable performance by Actor Karl Pruner.
