The Man Who Knew Infinity ★★★½

Why I watched this one? Saw a trailer that looked promising.

What is this one about? The story of the life and academic career of the pioneer Indian mathematician, Srinivasa Ramanujan, and his friendship with his mentor, Professor G.H. Hardy.

My thoughts on this one? The good stuff: I enjoyed the performances of Dev Patel and Jeremy Irons. Actually I am beginning to really appreciate the acting skills of Patel....who by the way might soon be an Oscar nominated actor soon....if you believe the buzz on his Lion movie that is coming out. I also liked the story....and I appreciated getting to know more about Ramanujan. The drawback of the movie is it seemed to follow the blueprint of so many other movies....in other words the movie is onecliche after another. Final thought: A good but far from great movie. The best trivia I picked up from the movie is that Ramanujan is mentioned in Good Will Hunting!
