Newton A Tale of Two Isaacs

Newton : A Tale of Two Isaacs

“This intelligent screenplay about Sir Isaac Newton’s battle to convince skeptics of the value of his scientific discoveries emphasizes the importance of perseverance and hard work, although kids may first get drawn into the story by a fictional subplot about a lab assistant more interested in romance than science.” — Parenting, February 1999
As Newton devotes himself to the difficult and solitary path of challenging the existing view of the universe and proving his own theories on celestial movement and gravity, his young scribe Humphrey wavers between pursuing science or following his heart.
