A Beautiful Mind
This amazing film is based on Sylvia Nasar's best selling biography of John Nash, an actually rather dull college boy who becomes a rather dull college instructor, a mentally ill professor and finally a Nobel Prize Winner. Ron Howard has remarkably been able to transform Nash's biography into an exciting suspense/thriller. Besides Russell Crowe's amazing portrayal which takes him from college freshman to an over 60 year-old academic, there are great supporting performances from Jennifer Connelly, Judd Hirsch, Paul Bettany, Ed Harris, and Christopher Plummer. Though the film is not totally faithful to the book, skipping some rather sordid details of Nash's life, they have made a wonderful film, one that will be long remembered, despite and probably because of the ommissions.
