Flash of Genius

I really liked this movie. It's the true story about the guy who invented the intermittent windshield wipers. You know, the ones where you can have a 3 sec, 8 sec, etc. delay. So he invented it, took his idea to Ford Motor Company, and then they took his model and never called him back basically. A couple years later he sees his wipers on the new Mustang, and the rest of the movie is him trying to get Ford to admit they stole his idea.

One of the reasons I really liked it, is because I get really into stories where something is insanely and tragically unfair. I remember crying in The Little Princess when I was like 9 for the same reason.

I would recommend it. It's pretty family friendly with maybe 3 swear words, although I'm sure it would bore children. It's a good one to watch with the hubby anyway.
