A captivating study in what it means to be a genius with his demons - A Beautiful Mind review by PJ

Spoiler Alert
Updated 16/08/2019

This is based on a true story. The acting is excellent -- R Crowe is impressive in this difficult part, confirming what I have always thought, i.e. that he is a very good actor. It is the harrowing story of a mathematical genius, in the USA, in the 1950s, who gets caught up in defence-related work and has to cope with his demons, helped in this by his wife.

I don't want to say any more so as not to give the story away, although, if you know the biography of the scientist it is about, you would obviously know what happened and when, since the movie is a faithful adaptation of his life's story. An unusual film, quite subtle and scary in some ways: highly recommended.
