A new drama about Mathematics has released a trailer but give it a chance before you judge, The Man Who Knew Infinity is a star studded period piece.
Colonial India, 1913. Srinavasa Ramanujan (Dev Patel) is a 25-year-old shipping clerk and self-taught genius, who failed out of college due to his near-obsessive, solitary study of mathematics. Determined to pursue his passion despite rejection and derision from his peers, Ramanujan writes a letter to G. H. Hardy (Jeremy Irons), an eminent British mathematics professor at Trinity College, Cambridge. Hardy recognises the originality and brilliance of Ramanujan’s raw talent and despite the scepticism of his colleagues, undertakes bringing him to Cambridge so that his theories can be explored.
The Man Who Knew Infinity stars Dev Patel, Jeremy Irons,Devika Bhise, Stephen Fry, and Toby Jones. Look for it in theatres on April 29th in the US and April 8th in the UK.
