This movie is best watched when you know the least bit about it. Winner of 4 Oscars including director Ron Howard's first Oscar nomination/win, this movie is a definite display of his move away from... Read more popcorn action movies. The movie is not much more than a biography of a mathematician; whose name not many people knew before this movie. However, that could be a huge understatement as Ron Howard has taken a simple biography and made a captivating film from start to finish.
Russell Crowe and Ed Harris have been (arguably) 2 of the most finest actors of all time and their combination is this movie is just perfect. Jennifer Connelly (imo) has always been one of the better popcorn movie actresses, she gives an excellent performance in the movie for the part of a very important character.
This is one of those movies worth watching many times; even it may be just to notice the attention to detail by the director. It's one of those heart warming and touching movies that you'll be glad you watched.
This movie is probably quite underrated by critics and some movie buffs, but at the same time revered by others. The only people who may not like this movie would be Russell Crowe haters ;-) But then again, this movie might help you change your mind. A must see movie!
Russell Crowe at his very best in this movie. Thoroughly enjoyed the unusual story line
Russell Crowe CAN ACT! I couldn't believe it. (Well, at least in this and 'The Insider'). Russ gives up a detailed and not too over-the-top performance here, ably assisted by Jennifer Conelly, excellent... Read more as his wife. Throw in another star turn from Ed Harris, and this makes for a very satisfying drama with great twists and turns. Director Ron Howard doesn't go too Hollywood on the film, and its restrained drive and psychological depth won me over.
Excellent film, but the copy I had was difficult to hear, even with the sound turned up full.
terrific movie..too bad it stopped so many times...poor quality
Russell Crowe was so convincing with the imaginery people that I expected at any moment to find out his being committed was a CIA ploy!! Gullible I am. A touching story and brought home the difficulties... Read more of people with mental affliction. Increases our compassion and understanding.
Well done in every aspect, although I have to admit that I was taken in completely with Nash's imaginary life, thinking that it was going to be about proving he wasn't crazy and escaping from the clutches... Read more of the evil Doctor Rosen! It was so sad when he had to accept that he had a problem, and only a very brave person could have overcome it, the way he did
I've only just got into watching movies again after being so busy with uni and work for the last 7 years, so didn't know anything about this one - wow what a great watch! And yes I agree Russell Crowe... Read more was excellent in it! If you are thinking of watching this and don't know anything about it - don't google it - just watch it!
This was beautiful. The acting was absolutely amazing. Russell Crowe should have won the oscar for this movie. One of the all time greatest performances
Just a great movie - great story - great acting and a must see - Russell Crowe is just fantastic, but others play good roles as well.
