When their new next-door neighbors turn out to be a sorority even more debaucherous than the fraternity previously living there, Mac and Kelly team with their former enemy, Teddy, to bring the girls down.
In the 1910s, Srinivasa Ramanujan is a man of boundless intelligence that even the abject poverty of his home in Madras, India cannot crush. Eventually, his stellar intelligence in mathematics and his boundless confidence in both attract the attention of the noted British mathematics professor, G.H. Hardy, who invites him to further develop his computations at Trinity College at Cambridge. Forced to leave his young wife, Janaki, behind, Ramanujan finds himself in a land where both his largely intuitive mathematical theories and his cultural values run headlong into both the stringent academic requirements of his school and mentor and the prejudiced realities of a Britain heading into World War One. Facing this with a family back home determined to keep him from his wife and his own declining health, Ramanujan joins with Hardy in a mutual struggle that would define Ramanujan as one of India's greatest modern scholars who broke more than one barrier in his worlds.

When Ramanujan is leaving, Hardy mentions he took a cab with an uninteresting number: 1729. Ramanujan says that 1729 is interesting because it is the smallest integer that can be summed by two cubes of integers in two different ways. The integers and the sums are 1 and 12, and 9 and 10. (1 + 1728, and 729 + 1000). At the end of the movie, Hardy chooses to take (another? the same?) cab, with the number plate "CE1729". (In real life, the exchange between Hardy and Ramanujan took place in Ramanujan's hospital room.) See more »
Ramanujan being a devout Vaishnava Iyengar Brahmin, doesn't worship Lord Ganesh(elephant faced god) as shown in the film when he goes to England(washes deities in a bowl of water). See more »
[gazing at the umbrella Hardy is carrying in full sunlight]
Sir, do you know something I do not?
[realizing the question referred to his umbrella]
Oh! God and I don't exactly see eye-to-eye. So if I prepare for rain, then it won't. So far, so good.
[bellowing at the sky]
I'm Hardy. And I'm spending the afternoon in the Wren Library!
[speaking again to Ramanujan]
Now we're sure to have sunshine. Hmph. You see, I am what you call an atheist.
No, sir. You believe in God....

Just saw "The Man Who Knew Infinity" at The Sun Valley Film Festival. So happy to see quality films make their US premiere in Sun Valley. Kudos to the non profit group. Must see movie with outstanding story, production and casting led by J. Irons. Independent films like these deserve to be seen & noticed. Opens NY/LA late April. Superb direction from Matt Brown with incredible sets and locations, especially location at Trinity College. Thought about the diversity issue facing the Academy and after seeing this movie, realized it was an issue for a brilliant mind like the lead against the English back in the day. The effort it took to make this film on a tight budget with incredible locations is a credit to the entire crew!
