The Man Who Knew Infinity [2016]

A beautifully told story, an excellent script and superb acting by Jeremy Irons and Dev Patel make 'The man who knew infinity' worthwhile viewing.

The movie is based on the untold story of one of the greatest minds of his generation, Srinivasa Ramanujan, whose genius for mathematics takes him from the slums of India to Cambridge University in the early 20th-century. Spurred on by his mentor, G. H. Hardy, Ramanujan overcomes racism and the rigidity of academia to revolutionize the field with his startlingly original theorems, which he attributes to divine inspiration. Even though I am no mathematician, I found the movie inspiring, absorbing and very moving. 'They must be true because, if they were not true, no one would have the imagination to invent them.' [Robert Kanigel, The Man Who Knew Infinity]
