A Beautiful Mind,
starring Russell Crowe playing John Nash Jr., tells the story
of a man whose mind was an enormous service to humanity, while
at the same time betraying himself with frightening delusions.
This movie fascinated me with its uplifting
story and it pulled me further and further into his life as it
Ron Howard directed a real winner. Maybe
his best yet. Don't miss this one.
Director Ron Howard strikes an emotional
chord in A Beautiful Mind, the true story of Professor
John Nash, a mathematical genius with an overactive imagination.
Russell Crowe and Jennifer Connely turn
in their best performances to date, (and are sure to be mentioned
come Oscar time).
With a great ensemble cast to round it
out with impeccable acting, which is emotional, dramatic and
compelling--it's a must see.
A Beautiful Mind
tells the true story of John Nash, a Nobel Prize winner who struggled
through most of his adult life with schizophrenia.
The movie becomes a tale of one man's battle
to overcome his own disability and the overreaching power of
love from his caring wife.
The picture revolves around the strength
of the relationship between the couple and how their strong union
or bond allows them to overcome the troublesome difficulties
they encounter along the path of life.
The film isn't about mathematics except
as a symbol. It's really about human frailty and the ability
to triumph over it.
This is as much a love story as a true
tale of courage. A very thoughtful look at mental illness.
