CHICAGO – Patrick McDonald of HollywoodChicago.com appears on “The Morning Mess” with Scott Thompson on WBGR-FM (Monroe, Wisconsin) on September 14th, 2023, reviewing “The Inventor,” an animated epic on the final days of inventor and artist Leonardo Da Vinci. In theaters on September 15th.

The film is an animated take on the life of Leonardo da Vinci (voice of Stephen Fry). We find da Vinci at a crossroads as the church in Italy, represented by Pope Leo the 10th (Matt Berry), condemns the painter and inventor for his progressive thought. When the King of France (Gauthier Battoue) and his mother Louise de Savoy (Marion Cottillard) convince da Vinci to move to France, he finds a muse in Marguerite (Daisy Ridley) and a new passion for creation in his last days.
