Synopsis

John Forbes Nash, Jr., a prodigy and legend by the age of thirty, dazzled the mathematical world by solving a series of deep problems deemed impossible by other mathematicians. But at the height of his fame, Nash suffered a catastrophic mental breakdown and began a harrowing descent into insanity, resigning his post at MIT, slipping into a series of bizarre delusions, and eventually becoming a dreamy, ghostlike figure at Princeton, scrawling numerological messages on blackboards. He was all but forgotten by the outside worlduntil, remarkably, he emerged from his madness to win the Nobel Prize. A true drama, A Beautiful Mind is also a fascinating look at the extraordinary and fragile nature of genius.
