The Man Who Knew Infinity
This biopic from writer/director Matt Brown details the extraordinary life of renowned Indian mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan (Dev Patel), who travels to England in 1913 to study at Cambridge. He faces prejudice there from many of his colleagues, but he also bonds with a professor named G.H. Hardy (Jeremy Irons). In time, Ramanujan authors a number of pioneering equations. ~ Jack Rodgers, Rovi

    This is a great movie even if you never studied advanced math. As an engineer it is a subject that I can relate to. The brilliance of the mathematician who comes from a poor background in rural India is well depicted. A genius of the order of Euler and Newton who is still anonymous to most of the world.
