Watch Young Einstein
- 1 hr 31 min
Australian comedian Yahoo Serious stars and directs this low budget irreverent comedy. A surreal take on the life of Albert Einstein, the movie stars Serious as the famed scientist. In this version of events the young Einstein is born at the turn of the twentieth century in Tasmania to an apple farmer. Despite his remote location and humble station, he still manages to apply his brilliant mind, just not as we are familiar with. His studies into atomic fission are due to wanting to carbonate beer, for example. His father recognizes the genius of the newly split beer atom and sends his son to the mainland to get a patent for his discovery. In Sydney he has a hard time fitting in, with his rural ways and his eccentricities, but he still manages to invent the electric guitar, develop the theory of rock'n'roll, and even woo a beautiful young Marie Curie (Odile Le Clezio).
