About this movie

Emmett is a popular junior at Heart High School. He also happens to be a highly imaginative twelve year-old child prodigy. After his brother Luke, also a junior and Emmett's best friend, is accused of being involved in a rash of thefts at the school, Emmett must find a way to prove his innocence before their mom ships Luke off to boarding school. Emmett enlists the help of his sixty-something SAT tutor and crime novelist, Mary, to help him find the real culprit. Together, with the assistance of his oddball friends and a benevolent science teacher, Emmett and Mary prove Luke's innocence and discover the real criminal may be someone from Mary's past.

Boy genius is an amazing film. I find it interesting that a 12 year old gets to go to high school and yet is very very smart. Is a very heartfelt movie starring Miles Brown as Emmett. When Emmett's brother Luke has to leave the family to go to a boarding school Emmett has to figure out why all the technology goes missing in which results in it actually being someone from Emmett's SAT prep tutor's past. I really enjoyed this movie and actually kind of wish there was a sequel.

A super family friendly movie. My 10 year old loved it. We've watched it together multiple times.
