Einstein's second biographical film
Albert Einstein is set to be the focus of another biographical film, although this one is said to be a less flattering look at his life.
The Private Lives of Albert Einstein will be turned into a film that looks at the struggles he faced early in his life and the human side of the great man.
Apparently the novel The Private Lives of Albert Einstein (Amazon.co.uk / Amazon.com) by Roger Highfield and Paul Carter, will tell a rather unflattering story of the man's life, particularly as it turns to issues concerning his personal life.
The other biographical film we heard about was from the Walter Isaacson biography entitled Einstein: His Life and Universe (Amazon.co.uk / Amazon.com). Isaacson was the first biographer to gain access to Einstein's private archives and will also look at the man's personal life and struggles, including his relationships.
It'll be interesting to see how these projects play against each other and if each goes through to production with a different take on his life. Either way it'll be wonderful to see more about this great scientist, but should we really be looking so closely at his personal life and prying into it? Are there not other aspects of his life that deserve greater scrutiny?
