Summary, etc.:
This film is about Albert Einstein, a German-born theoretical physicist who developed the general theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics alongside quantum mechanics. He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics for his "services to theoretical physics." At the end of a brilliant career in 1954, Albert Einstein (Paul Soles) was arguably as famous a media figure as he was a scholar and physicist at Princeton University. Through some interesting circumstances, the wild-haired academic meets young Lannie (Lataye Studwood), a twelve year-old African-American girl, whose mother works on the University cooking and cleaning staff. Getting to know Lannie, Albert is reminded of his own early struggles in Switzerland, his quest for intellectual freedom, and his growing concern for the future of democracy in his adopted America. In this historical drama we see her youth and earnestness renew Albert's spirit and in return Albert gives Lannie an incredible gift: an awareness of her potential...The film won the "Award of Excellence"from the Alliance for Children & Television and "Best Film"from the Chicago International Children's Film Festival.
