New movie The Man Who Knew Infinity will arrive in UK cinemas in a couple of weeks, and a new poster has been revealed as a teaser.
Dev Patel leads the impressive cast of the film, which also features legendary actor Jeremy Irons. Devika Bhise, Stephen Fry and Toby Jones also star.
Here’s the story.
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 recognizes the originality and brilliance of Ramanujan’s raw talent and despite the skepticism of his colleagues, undertakes bringing him to Cambridge so that his theories can be explored.
The Man Who Knew Infinity is the improbable true story of a unique genius whose pivotal theories propelled him from obscurity into a world in the midst of war, and how he fought tirelessly to show the world the magic of his mind.
The Man Who Knew Infinity arrives on April 8th, 2016 in the UK.
