At Princeton University, John Nash struggles to make a worthwhile contribution to serve as his legacy to the world of mathematics.

Meanwhile the government asks his help with breaking Soviet codes, which soon gets him involved in a terrifying conspiracy plot.

Now it is only with Alicia’s help that he will be able to recover his mental strength and regain his status as the great mathematician we know him as today.

One review

  • “A beautiful mind” gets a lot of good reviews and high scores, but I was not one of those who liked the film. I just couldn’t get into this movie. It was interesting up until the true meaning of the film was revealed. After that, I just sat there bored out of my mind. This film has good points of course: acting, camera work and the general look of the film are well done. However, the plot does not carry a film of this length and scope. It’s just a film with a big name actor (Russell Crowe) backed up by hype galore. I still can’t believe it won so many awards.
