If you plan to while away any of your upcoming winter hours staring at the flickering flames of your video box, you should make sure you watch this when you do.
Nobelity is a new film from writer and actor Turk Pipkin. (You’d recognize him if you saw him–he had a featured role in the Sopranos among other things). It’s a travelogue of sorts filmed as Turk traveled the continents seeking answers to the problems the world faces from a cross section of Nobel prize winners and looking at these issues through the eyes of the people who will be most affected by the decisions we make today: the children of the world.
If you're thinking that this all sounds very talking-head-scholarly-oh-dear-lord-can-I-sleep-now,
and even perhaps a bit this-is-less-than-captivating-let’s go-watch-some-paint-dry-instead, think again. Nobelity is wonderfully photographed and extremely engaging. It's a thought provoking experience that’s off-the-charts inspiring on all levels.
