Movie Review: The Man Who Knew Infinity

April 15 2017:

Team TLC Movie Night – Thomas‘ choice: “The Man Who Knew Infinity”

Thomas says, “Good, very interesting, and liked the story.”

Lillian says, “Good, interesting, great, amazing, and cool.”

I say, “Absolutely loved this movie.” True story of Srinivasa Ramanujan as seen through professor G.H. Hardy’s eyes. In 1913, Ramanujan was a man who only shared what came from his heart ….. at all costs.

He was a self-taught math genius and faced extreme prejudice at Trinity College, Cambridge. Math formulas were his art. He saw them as beautiful. One of his formulas is currently used in relation to black holes. “Mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth but supreme beauty.” -Bertrand Russell
