The Man Who Knew Infinity is Srinivasa Ramanujan Iyengar (Slumdog Millionaire‘s Dev Patel) who, while growing up poor in Madras, India, earned admittance to Cambridge University during World War I where he became a pioneer in mathematical theories under the guidance of his professor, GH Hardy (Jeremy Irons).
Also starring Toby Jones, Jeremy Northam, Kevin McNally, Enzo Cilenti and Stephen Fry, the film is written and directed by Matt Brown.
The Man Who Knew Infinity is released in the UK on April 8th, but based on this trailer, it’ll be an infinite length of time before I volunteer to see it.
