    It sounds interesting, telling the tail of something I didn't know about and all, but I think a rental would it will be.

    Not exactly. He invented the wipers with the pause and he pitches it to the Ford company. I don't wanna give any spoilers, but it is worth going to see in the theater. Very solid story and characters.

    I remember hearing about this guy 17 years ago. I wonder is he still alive today?

    Sadly the real Bob Kearns passed away a few years ago from Alzheimer's. I think he did accumulate around $30 mil from his invention but that's not what he was really after.
