Not everyone deserves being called a “genius.” So we introduce you to The Man Who Knew Infinity. Dev Patel stars as Srinivasa Ramanujan, a self-taught Indian mathematics genius. In 1913, he traveled to Trinity College, Cambridge, where over the course of five years, he forged a bond with his mentor, the brilliant and eccentric professor, G.H. Hardy (played by Jeremy Irons), while fighting against prejudice to reveal his mathematic genius to the world. As the Chicago Sun-Times raved, the film “is not so much a film about understanding the numbers, but understanding the men who made us see their merit, and the passion that drives each of us to find the true meaning in our lives.”
The Man Who Knew Infinity arrives on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD August 23 from Paramount Home Media Distribution. The film will also be available for sale or rental from cable, satellite and telco providers through IFC Films.
A great film that adds up to a most entertaining adventure!
