The Man Who Knew Infinity

Released 2015 Rating 12A
Director Matt Brown Writer/s Matt Brown
Starring Dev Patel, Jeremy Irons, Toby Jones, Jeremy Northam
Source of story A book by Robert Kanigel
Elevator Pitch An Indian mathemetician, who appears to be a genius is invited to Cambridge to collaborate with Professor Hardy, but despite his groundbreaking work, the university is reluctant to accept him. Meanwhile things do not go well with the small family he has left in India.
Content A lot of maths, and quite a bit of Indian atmosphere, but heaven knows why this is a 12A. Although admittedly the unfortunate Indian is kicked about at one time.
A View One of the reviewers says that the Indian story is complete fiction, which does not surprise me, since obviously it is intended to give what is a dull film a bit of pace. My wife says she enjoyed it a lot more than High Rise.
