- Finally, a note from our store. Nobel Son released on DVD last week, and I had a chance to view a review copy. Receiving critical acclaim during the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival, Nobel Son follows Barkley Michaelson, a 20 something-year-old in a life rut struggling to finish his Ph.D thesis. Always cast in the shadow of his highly accomplished father Eli Michaelson, the estranged relationship between father and son is complicated further when Barkley is kidnapped on the eve of Eli winning a Nobel Prize in chemistry for a ransom of $2,000,000 (the amount won as a recipient of the prize). When his father refuses to pay, it starts a game of intrigue and deception.
The film features a stellar ensemble cast and crew directed by Randall Miller (Bottle Shock) including Golden Globe winner Alan Rickman (Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street), Bryan Greenberg (Bride Wars), Eliza Dushku ("Dollhouse"), Shawn Hatosy ("Southland"), Oscar®-winner Mary Steenburgen (Four Christmases), Bill Pullman, Ted Danson and Danny Devito. Featuring original music from composers Mark Adler (Bottle Shock) and Paul Oakenfold (The Matrix Reloaded), the film includes tracks from Spitfire, Chemical Brothers and Groove Armada.
