The Illusionist, which took in $88 million worldwide from just a $17 million budget in 2006, centered on Edward Norton's Eisenheim, a talented magician in 19th Century Vienna who uses his incredible skills to win the heart of the woman he loves (Jessica Biel), while trying to outwit a Crown Prince (Rufus Sewell) and a detective (Paul Giamatti).

Toronto Film Review: ‘X+Y’

10 September 2014 2:08 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

, “X+Y” zeroes in on a young math whiz who only gradually comprehends the basics of establishing relationships with other people. Deconstructionist critics and mainstream moviegoers alike may find it difficult not to reference “Rain Man,” “A Beautiful Mind” and “David and Lisa” while describing the movie to potential ticketbuyers. But even though such comparisons are hardly inapt, director Morgan Matthews’ debut fiction feature — inspired by his acclaimed 2007 documentary “Beautiful Young Minds” — proves potent on its own terms as a satisfying, compelling drama with definite crossover potential on screens of all sizes.

Much like its nonfiction predecessor, “X+Y” focuses on student competitors in the Intl. Mathematics Olympiad (Imo). In concert with scripter James Graham, Matthews has spun off a scenario about a character not unlike one of the more memorable subjects in “Beautiful Young Minds,” a neurodevelopmentally challenged math prodigy named Daniel Lightwing.

In the world according to “X+Y, »

X + Y Review [Tiff 2014]

8 September 2014 8:41 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There are not many films made about kids like Nathan Ellis. Sure, the story of a young social outsider trying to break out of his shell is not a unique one (as I wrote about in my review for fellow Tiff selection Wet Bum), but Nathan is autistic and has a very deliberate way of doing things. For instance, he cannot order chicken balls from the local Chinese restaurant unless the number of balls he gets is a prime number. Besides his picky eating, Nathan gets distracted by noise and has a hard time working in a room with a ticking clock or other students tapping their fingers on a desk loudly. He fears handshakes, is unable to understand the social cues involved with that greeting gesture, and calms himself by saying the Fibonacci sequence out loud.

Few films focus on boys who can be coldly sincere, their personality almost hidden from view. »

Tiff Trailer: Math Drama 'X+Y' Starring Asa Butterfield, Sally Hawkins, Eddie Marsan And Rafe Spall

26 August 2014 1:14 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In 2007, director Morgan Matthews delivered his TV documentary "Beautiful Young Minds," which centered on a group of students participating in the International Mathematics Olympiad. Among the nods it received was a BAFTA TV nomination for Best Single Documentary, and now Matthews hopes the feature version of that story will get even more attention. Asa Butterfield, Sally Hawkins, Rafe Spall and Eddie Marsan have joined forces for "X+Y." With a script by playwright James Graham, it tells the story of a borderline autistic kid whose love of numbers gets him on the British Math Team, where a trip to Taipei for the International Mathematics Olympiad brings the possibility of romance, and opens him up to a whole new life. Gotta say, we never felt this inspired while doing long division. Here's the official synopsis:  For most of us, equations are just a means to an end. But for teenage math »

Watch: 'X+Y' Trailer Starring Asa Butterfield and Sally Hawkins

25 August 2014 9:20 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The first trailer for X+Y has premiered ahead of its upcoming world premiere at the 2014 Toronto Film Festival. Directed by Morgan Matthews, the film stars Asa Buttefield (Ender's Game, Hugo) as Nathan, a socially awkward teenage math prodigy who finds new confidence and new friendships when he lands a spot on the British squad at the International Mathematics Olympiad, particularly the unfamiliar feelings for his Chinese counterpart, Zhang Mei (Jo Yang). Rafe Spall, Sally Hawkins and Eddie Marsan co-star. The film heads into the festival without a distributor so it will definitely be looking to turn some heads and gain some attention.

Asa Butterfield as a Young Math Prodigy in First 'X+Y' Trailer from Tiff

25 August 2014 8:32 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"If beauty is truth, and truth is beauty, well, then surely mathematics is the most beautiful thing of all." Check out this trailer for a film titled X+Y, not the best title but I see what they were going for, a drama about a talented young math prodigy diagnosed as being on the autism spectrum. Asa Butterfield plays the boy, Nathan, who is being raised by a single mother, played by the always impressive Sally Hawkins, and he befriends his teacher, played by Rafe Spall. He ends up on a big trip to Taiwan on the British team of the International Mathematics Olympiad, joined by Eddie Marsan there. It's a great cast, and while the trailer occasionally gets a bit sappy, there is something unique about it and I'm curious to see. Give it a look. Here's the first official festival trailer for Morgan Matthews' X+Y, from »
