The Next Time You Find Yourself Driving in the Rain…

… you may also find yourself thinking about Bob Kearns, the inventor of the intermittent windshield wiper.  You’re going to know a lot more about him and his crusade to get Ford Motor Company to admit to infringing on his patent if you catch Flash of Genius in theaters this weekend.

This movie is completely up my alley and I can’t wait to see it.  First off, I love almost anything that is "based on a true story," especially if the premise is kind of nerdy.  Secondly, I hail from Michigan and although I grew up in a "GM family," the entire auto industry is near and dear to my heart, so I naturally am curious to learn more about this often taken for granted vehicle feature.  Thirdly, I love Greg Kinnear (also currently starring in Ghost Town).  Lastly, Mitch Pileggi is in the cast as well.  Hellooooo, Assistant Director Skinner from The X-Files!

 

And it even has a Dave Matthews Band song in its trailer?  SOLD!

    My interest in seeing this film is *in spite of* the Dave Matthews band in the trailer. Remember “Tucker?” That was a great car movie too.
