The Man Who Knew Infinity (2015) Dev Patel – Movie Review

The Man Who Knew Infinity looks at the life of Srinivasa Ramanujan, a mathematician from India who would become famous in the math world for his prodigious work in the early part of the 20th Century. Ramanujan had a gift for mathematics that was seemingly ahead of what anyone else had been dealing with at the time, claiming that the numbers and formulas just come to him out of divine origin. His work would soon draw interest in England, causing Ramanujan to leave his wife Janaki and mother behind to pursue his calling among the top minds in the field at the time, hoping to realize his dream of getting his mathematical journals published.
