Overwrought
3 May 2017 | by pigeoncaSee all my reviews

I suppose this may get better, but we turned it off after the first half hour. The acting was way over the top, and the guy who plays young Einstein is too ridiculously old to be believable as a high school student. Not to speak of the opening sex scene, which smacks of commerciality.
