Synopsis Helped in part by the excellent chemistry Patel has with Jeremy Irons, who, clearly enjoying himself in his role as the experienced mathematician, is able to bring a thoughtful meticulousness to Ramanujan’s more spontaneous ways of working.The actors have great rapport, discussing the importance of academic rigor and the quest for scientific immortality....It's kind of nice to see a movie more interested in intellectual sparring than the physical kind.Naturally, a final-act triumph of sorts is all but assured. And, thanks in large part to Irons and Patel, audiences will be moved.Mr. Irons handily hits the emotional beats, as does Mr. Patel...The film’s heart comes from the unlikely friendship between Ramanujan and Hardy, and Patel and Irons both give nuanced, poignant performances as two men from different worlds...The arguments between Ramanujan and Hardy form easily the most absorbing aspect of THE MAN WHO KNEW INFINITY as their eloquent clash of wills is shown to be not just intellectual but ideological in nature...This biopic from writer/director Matt Brown details the extraordinary life of renowned Indian mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan (Dev Patel), who travels to England in 1913 to study at Cambridge. He faces prejudice there from many of his colleagues, but he also bonds with a professor named G.H. Hardy (Jeremy Irons). In time, Ramanujan authors a number of pioneering equations.
