Film synopsis

“Nearly every man who develops an idea works it up to the point where it looks impossible, and then he gets discouraged. That’s not the place to become discouraged. “  Thomas A. Edison, inventor of the electric light bulb.When fast-talking salesman Sam (Oscar® nominee Jeremy Renner, The Hurt Locker, The Avengers) and small-time inventor Matt (Dallas Roberts, Walk The Line) team-up to take the world by storm they are in for more than a few disappointments along the way. Scheming to develop the ‘next big thing’ and make their respective fortunes, the friends are stifled by a run of bad luck and a gambling habit that threatens to shut down their business for good.  But with a little hard work, dogged perseverance and a truck-load of luck the two friends attempt to forge on with one last idea that may just change their lives forever. Also featuring Ayelet Zurer (Angels & Demons), Ingenious is an illuminating true story of friendship in the face of adversity, reaffirming the power of sheer ingenuity and exploring Edison’s grand idea that “genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration.”
