Synopsis:
Srinavasa Ramanujan (Dev Patel) is a 25-year-old shipping clerk and self-taught genius. Determined to pursue his passion despite rejection and derision from his peers, Ramanujan writes a letter to G. H. Hardy (Jeremy Irons), an eminent British mathematics professor at Trinity College, Cambridge. Hardy recognises the originality and brilliance of Ramanujan's raw talent and despite the skepticism of his colleagues, undertakes bringing him to Cambridge so that his theories can be explored. Ramanujan leaves his family, his community, and his beloved young bride, Janaki (Devika Bhise), to travel across the world to England.
There, he finds understanding and a deep connection with his sophisticated and eccentric mentor. Under Hardy's guidance, Ramanujan's work evolves in ways that will revolutionise mathematics and transform how scientists explain the world.

Good movie about an interesting unknown story - The Man Who Knew Infinity review by MD

Unfortunately, I did not see this myself, but my wife who did asked me to report that it was a well done little tale that told an interesting story in the manner of other films like "The Theory of Everything". She felt it was very well acted, and though a little predictable, perfectly watchable by a general audience as well as those with a particular interest in maths and science.

Goodwill hunting based on fact - The Man Who Knew Infinity review by NC

Jeremy Irons always worth watching, plus can hear every word he says, bonus! Imitation Game with Benedict way up there at top of the maths books, the Man Who Knew Everything say second. Shame they never had any info on Ramanujan's earlier life. Education must have been very very basic for a low caste Indian in Madras. Where did he get any input into algebra and just the way to write the equations etc. Pure Maths is up on basic algebraic functions. Even if self taught he would need some input to start, and the books..............

interesting, humane, well acted. The maths element was fascinating, even to a general public. I googled Ramanujan's life to find out more about him.
