Greg Kinnear stars as Dr. Robert Kearns in Flash of Genius (Universal)
After seeing the film Flash of Genius (opening October 2 throughout San Diego) you may never look at your windshield wipers in the same way. In the film, Greg Kinnear plays Dr. Robert Kearns, a Detroit engineer who invents the intermittent windshield wiper and then has the idea stolen by Ford. It's based on a true story and on a New Yorker magazine article by John Searbrook. It's a classic David versus Goliath as Kearns decides to take on Ford in their town of Detroit. Greg Kinnear says that the film is resonating with audiences.
