“Watching a film won’t make you smarter, but if there ever was one that could, it would be ‘Particle Fever,’ a movie so mind-bending you can almost feel your brain cells growing as you’re watching it.” – Kenneth Turan, LA Times
“As they seek to unravel the mysteries of the universe, 10,000 scientists from over 100 countries joined forces in pursuit of a single goal: to recreate conditions that existed just moments after the Big Bang and find the Higgs boson, potentially explaining the origin of all matter. But our heroes confront an even bigger challenge: have we reached our limit in understanding why we exist?” (particlefever.com). Premiered at the 2013 Telluride Film Festival.
“It plays out with all the suspense of a thriller.” – Michael O’Sullivan, Washington Post
