New film: What if a Neanderthal were alive today?


Tim Disney has a new film about a guy who is really a Neanderthal (thanks to a DNA genetic experiment):

A critic finds that the show has unexpected depth:

Michael Rechtshaffen, “Review: A contemporary Neanderthal comes of age in Tim Disney’s touching ‘William’” at LA Times

Wonder who he’d have to thank for that…

Looks like the feel-good hit of the season, judging by the trailer. It will require a great deal of effort to suspend disbelief when the brilliant researcher decides to impregnate herself with a cloned neanderthal embryo, I suspect. daveS
