Written and directed by Matt Brown, The Man Who Knew Infinity is the true story of Srinivasa Ramanujan Iyengar, a self taught mathematician from India who helped take mathematics to where it is today…

I feel like I already know the full story – following this ‘so-called trailer’, However, I’ll still be tuning in because I enjoy movies about people who have achieved great things. I also like stories of  beautiful friendships, such as the one between Iyengar and his mentor, British mathematician, G.H. Hardy.

It really helps that the filmaking team involved just happens to be very promising. To name just a few,  Jeremy Irons, Dev Patel and Toby Jones.

The Man Who Knew Infinity Release Dates: April 8th, 2016 (UK); April 29th, 2016 (US)…

Happy Film Loving 🙂

THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING (2014): Watch For Eddie Redmayne’s Award Worthy Transformation

The Theory of Everything is the love story of acclaimed theoretical physicist and cosmologist Professor Stephen Hawking and his wife, Jane.

For those hoping that The Theory of Everything will delve deeply into the science Hawkings is famous for, that’s not the emphasis here.

High quality performances are seen all round including the portrayal of Jane by Felicity Jones. However, it’s Eddie Redmayne’s incredible 2015 Best Actor Oscar winning turn as Hawking that generates nothing if not the utmost respect for his talents and handwork.

Redmayne manages to expertly embody Hawking’s physicality, emotions and famously mischievous sense of humour through the various stages of his life before and from the onset of motor neurone disorder.

Directed by James Marsh, this biography / drama for me, is about the beauty of friendship, love and most of all, what is possible with the human spirit.

As Hawking put it himself:

“There should be no boundary to human endeavour. We are all different. However bad life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at. While there is life, there is hope’.

Happy The Theory Of Everything 🙂
