Based on the biography 'Max Perkins: Editor of Genius' by A. Scott Berg. This is the opera prima of Michael Grandage, who was artistic director of the acclaimed Donmar Warehouse in London from 2002-2011, when he succeeded Sam Mendes. With a screenplay written by John Logan ('The Aviator', 'Gladiator', 'Skyfall'), the film features a comprehensive cast formed by Colin Firth ('The King's Speech', 'A Single Man'), Jude Law ('Cold Mountain', 'The Talented Mr. Ripley'), Nicole Kidman ('The Hours', 'Australia'), Laura Linney ('Mr. Holmes, 'Kinsey') and Guy Pearce ('Memento', 'Animal Kingdom').
