This series did really well in describing visually how artists and scientists as brilliant as Einstein "check out" when they are in the midst of their creative thinking and working. Too bad he waited so long to apologize to his son for not being there for him when he was growing up. His global awareness, had the American government listened to his warnings about the rise of the Nazis, could have changed the course of the war and the Holocaust.
This is a cautionary tale for females with brilliant minds. Einstein's ego was larger than the universe. Shame on him for not sharing credit with his first wife.
the young Albert Einstein looked too much like Charlie Chaplin at first, with a bad German accent, which was throughout disconcerting, but at the seventh episode, finally, Geoffrey Rush shows up to save the day as the older Einstein, along with an equally impressive Emily Watson as Elsa, his second wife, enough to make the whole thing entirely worth watching, a worthy tribute to a great man
Odd how stories of well known men are always based around the women in their lives. Some very great actors in this series. The story shows the arrogant paternity of its time and place.
Excellent. Not only tells you about the life of Albert but you get to experience history during both World Wars. Albert, besides being brilliant was a sexy, charming funny guy. Who knew? Got into trouble being a pacifist, and J. Edgar was convinced he was a communist. He wasn't
An interesting biopic of a brilliant mind that often brought on problems not only with his superiors but in his personal life too. Good acting by Rush and Samantha Colley as Einstein first wife, who also had a great scientific mind.
