I was expecting more of a dysfunctional family story when I rented Nobel Son. Turns out I had a thriller on my hands. Eli Michalson is a self centered bastard, who is more put out than concerned, when his son is kidnapped on the eve of his receiving the Nobel Prize in chemistry. The events, previous and following, twist turn and surprise the viewer. The reveals are many and come quickly. Pay attention. A crazy ride, a decent rental.
