The Man Who Knew Infinity

London-born actor Dev Patel plays mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan in his latest film, The Man Who Knew Infinity.

 

Dev Patel (of Slumdog Millionaire fame) leads an all-star cast in the amazing true story of brilliant mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan (a self-taught mathematics genius) who was born in Madras. 

In 1913, Ramanujan is a 25-year-old shipping clerk with an obsessive aptitude for mathematics.

Living in India and determined to pursue his passion, he writes a letter to G. H. Hardy (Jeremy Irons), an eminent mathematics professor at Trinity College, Cambridge.

Ramanujan is brought to England so his theories can be explored.

Leaving behind his new wife, he struggles with a major culture clash, gets beaten up for being different, is charmingly unsophisticated, and ultimately expands the minds of some fusty old racists.
