The Man Who Knew Infinity Double Passes
Film opens May 5, 2016
We have five double passes to see The Man Who Knew Infinity in the cinemas courtesy of Icon Film Distribution. You just take the pass to a theatre where the film is showing and swap it for tickets. Easy.
The Man Who Knew Infinity is the story of Srinivasa Ramanujan (Dev Patel). In Madras, India he cannot get a job as a mathematician because he has no degree, but he finally finds work as a clerk. His boss encourages him to apply to G. H. Hardy (Jeremy Irons) at Cambridge for help in getting his work published.
He leaves behind his young wife, his mother, and everything he knows to follow the numbers. Crossing the seas is against his (Hindu) faith, but he does so, and he lives a precarious existence in Cambridge rooms maintaining his vegetarian diet in 1914.
The relationship between the two men is awkward, Ramanujan faces prejudice and disbelief, but he learns academic rigor. This is a fascinating story about people and the rarified world of pure research. read review
