A Beautiful Mind 2001

Your Rating/Review

The only thing greater than the power of the mind is the courage of the heart.

Academy Award-winning biopic about a gifted mathematician and his struggle to maintain his crippling mental health. Directed by Ron Howard (Apollo 13), stars Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly and Ed Harris. More

John Nash (Crowe) stood out at Princeton not just for his mathematical brilliance but also his asocial behaviour. Even amongst the greatest minds at the university, his genius was unparalleled, creating completely original theorem and solving the most perplexing of problems. However, as his battle with schizophrenia worsens, so does his grip on reality. Hide

Consensus: "The well-acted A Beautiful Mind is both a moving love story and a revealing look at mental illness."

ROTTEN TOMATOES SCORE. Read more reviews on Rotten Tomatoes.
Chicago Sun-Times (Roger Ebert)

Crowe brings the character to life by sidestepping sensationalism and building with small behavioral details. Full review.

Empire (UK)

Certainly gripping. Whether you can fully enjoy its many strengths depends on how comfortable you are with a real, tortured and ultimately tragic life being forced into Hollywood's formulaic straitjacket. Full review.

Los Angeles Times

When the film does succeed, it almost seems to do so despite itself. Full review.

New York Times

Should be intellectually rejected, but you can't quite banish it from your mind. Full review.

Rolling Stone (USA)

Sadly, Howard blands out in the final third, using old-age makeup and tear-jerking to turn a tough true story into something easily digestible. Until then, you'll be riveted. Full review.

Total Film (UK)

Superb, Oscar-calibre performances in a fascinating tale of feverish '50s paranoia, Cold War intrigue and some very, very complicated algebra. Full review.

Variety (USA)

Serious-minded but lively film is distinguished by an exceptional performance by Russell Crowe. Full review.
