Kevin Spacey Goes On Quest For Next Big Thing in trailer for Father of Invention

Kevin Spacey has accomplished everything an actor has ever wanted to: won a couple Oscars, headlined films that have been both critical and commercial hits and played virtually every kind of role he ever wanted to. Now comes another potentially great, quirky role for the star in Father of Invention.

Plot Summary: A television infomercial introduces the audience to a rich entrepreneur Robert Axle (Spacey), a “fabricator” who combines other people’s inventions into popular consumer products. But one of his products causes severe injuries to purchasers, which results in an eight-year term in prison.

Released and broke, he wants to get back on his feet with fresh inventions. More important, he wants to reclaim the love of his estranged daughter (Belle), whom he neglected when she was a youngster. First, though, he must get past a doubtful parole officer, dubious employers and his daughter’s man-hating roommate (Graham).
