Born into crushing poverty in late-19th-century India, Srinivasa Ramanujan (Dev Patel) proved out to be a mathematical prodigy before he reached his teens. By the 1910s, his reputation drew the notice of celebrated Cambridge professor G.H. Hardy (Jeremy Irons), and the mentorship and bond that developed over the short balance of Ramanujan’s life--that weathered the academic community’s skepticism of the self-taught genius’s theories--is memorably dramatized in this effort. Devika Bhise, Stephen Fry, Toby Jones, and Jeremy Northam also star. 108 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital 5.1; Subtitles: English, Spanish, French.
