The plot of the film focuses on the highly experienced editor Maxwell Perkins , who opened the world to such famous novelists as F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway.

Whether Grandage will save in front of his own outstanding heroes, or " Genius " will become the second "The King's Speech!", We'll find out on July 7 .
