"Yes, the actor is a half-foot shorter than the literary giant he portrays in the film “Genius,” which tells the story of Wolfe and his contentious, complicated relationship with prominent Scribner’s editor Maxwell Perkins (Colin Firth). Alternatively exuberant and morose, captivating and maddening, delightful and just plain weird, Wolfe is likely the most fascinating author I’ve encountered in the quarter-century that I’ve been reading and studying literature. Reviews and letters from Asheville, North Carolina – Wolfe’s hometown – could elicit very different reactions from the temperamental author. Wolfe’s first novel, “Look Homeward, Angel,” was a thinly veiled autobiography, and the inspirations for many characters were easily identifiable. Fellow novelist Vardis Fisher remembered Wolfe reading some of the backlash aloud to him, “weeping, cursing, hating – hating as I have never seen a man hate.”", www.seattlepi.com
"There’s never been a big-screen adaptation of any Thomas Wolfe novel — in marked contrast to his contemporaries F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway, who have also been portrayed by actors in several movies. Jude Law gives arguably the worst performance of his career as Wolfe in “Genius,’’ the ham-fisted directing debut of noted British theater figure Michael Grandage, bombastically adapted by John Logan (“Gladiator’’) from a biography by A. Scott Berg. The film focuses on Wolfe’s relationship with legendary book editor Maxwell Perkins (a bland Colin Firth), who in (a clichéd) New York of the Roaring ’20s trims down a much-rejected manuscript that ran over 1,000 pages into Wolfe’s classic best seller “Look Homeward, Angel.’’ Their friendship effectively ended because of the more drastic cuts that Perkins made to shape “Of Time and the River’’ — a massive work", nypost.com
