Storyline

As a young boy, Richard was fascinated with science and objects in motion. This wonderment was reinforced through the efforts of his father. The only thing that mattered as much as science, and his family, was Arline, whom he met when they were both in school. But fate can often be cruel and Arline is found to be stricken by Tuberculosis. Undaunted, Richard studies the disease as he studies science in hopes of curing her. When her disease is in remission, they marry and he proceeds on to college where his studies and the war lead him to Los Alamos to work on the Manhattan Project. While Richard is intrigued with the solution to the project, he is also concerned with the outcome and saddened with the failing health of Arline. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

Trivia

The gate scene at Los Alamos is accurate and Richard had many more pranks that he pulled while working there. Most notably he picked locks. The one unique combination of locks was a series of file cabinets in a mathematicians office where the combinations began with the first few digits of the natural logarithm of e. See more »

Quotes

Richard Feynman: Mathematics is a language. It's very difficult. It's subtle. You couldn't say those things any other way - and I can talk to dead people with it. I talk to Copernicus every day.

How to film a love affair
3 January 2005 | by (Tampa, Florida) – See all my reviews

Take a real-life pair of lovers. Stay true to the specifics of their lives. Don't over-emphasize high points and low points for unrealistic dramatic effect. Let the story tell itself. In the mid-1930's, a brilliant young scientist fell in love with a girl from his neighborhood and began a relationship with her that lasted until her untimely death. They went on dates, he told her about his work, she opened up his mind to the arts, and they made love whenever and wherever possible. Here's another clue to filming a love affair: don't show the couple in the act of love accompanied by the pop hits of the day. Show us the prelude and the afterglow and save the gymnastics for the screenwriters with little imagination. Matthew Broderick shines as both star and director of this small film, and Patricia Arquette gave her best performance to date as his no-nonsense leading lady. The physics are a bit over my head but the romance is real and beautiful to watch.
