Einstein Tonight

Einstein Tonight

Person of the 21st Century: Albert Einstein -Time Magazine
"Highly Recommended. Just as newsreel audiences once took Einstein to heart, so will viewers of this program. Boretski's exquisite timing and wonderful body language make the character." -The Globe and Mail Review
Albert Einstein had one of the finest creative minds of the 20th century, yet remained a simple, kind man impervious to ambition and power. In his idiosyncratic search for the underlying principles of the universe, he suffered disillusionment and great personal pain. He was an ardent pacifist, yet because of the impending threat of the Nazi war machine, he shared his theory equating mass and energy with the United States, which led to the creation of the atomic bomb, a decision he regretted having to make. This dramatic fantasy/satire, based on the play, Einstein, by Gabriel Emanuel, stars Peter Boretski in the lead role, whose convincing performance presents an intimate and eye-opening portrait of the great scientist. Here the troubled 70-year-old Einstein meets a young girl, Sarah, and they become kindred spirits. He shares experiences about his troubled childhood, reminisces about his father, remembers his early years in Switzerland, and enlightens us about his philosophy on atomic energy and nuclear disarmament. Through the beauty of Sarah's youthful innocence and the power of their friendship, Einstein rediscovers hope for the future and concludes saying, "The important thing is never to quit questioning...all our knowledge is but her knowledge, the knowledge of school children."
