One of the previews I saw while waiting for "Mamma Mia" to begin was for a movie coming out in October that looked pretty interesting...well, as interesting as you can get for a film that's about windshield wipers. It's called "Flash of Genius" and stars Greg Kinnear as family man Robert Kearns, a college professor and part-time inventor who created the intermittent windshield wiper in the late 60s and pitched it to carmakers, only to see Ford steal the idea from under his nose. You can guess what happens next: a classic David vs. Goliath story as Kearns decides to sue one of the biggest American car manufacturers. I'm purposely not looking this one on Wikipedia so I won't know how it ends in advance. The supporting cast includes Alan Alda, Lauren Graham, Dermot Mulroney, and some beautiful 60s automotives and I'm putting it on my list for fall movie viewing.
