This absorbing biopic recounts the life of self-taught Indian mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan, who made his way to Trinity College at Cambridge in 1913 and rose to prominence under the tutelage of renowned math professor G.H. Hardy. From abject poverty in India, Ramanujan fights against racism and cultural differences to study, develop and publish his mathematical theories. His relationship with Professor Hardy grew from one of challenge to one of shared admiration as their worlds began to collide with the beginning of WWI. The Man Who Knew Infinity is an inspiring testament to professional talent and familial devotion.
