    Showtimes posted the Monday prior to opening.

    Director Michel Gondry (ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND) applies his playful imagination to animating a series of conversations with the esteemed linguist, philosopher, political commentator and activist Noam Chomsky. At the heart of these talks is Chomsky's theory of the emergence of language. In this intellectual feast, Gondry uses drawings to make complex ideas more accessible and to expand the documentary form.

    “Blissfully unconventional as a documentary and as an intellectual endeavor,...its modesty is one of its strengths, along with Mr. Gondry’s entrancing, vibrant illustrations.” —Manohla Dargis, New York Times
    
    “You don't need to be an intellectual to enjoy it; just a fan of art and science. Somewhere out there da Vinci is smiling.” —Al Alexander, The Patriot Ledger
