Alicia was credited with saving John during his battle with schizophrenia, which was chronicled in Sylvia Nasar's biography "A Beautiful Mind" and adapted in the movie. The 2001 film was accused of revising history, but won Academy Awards for Best Picture; Best Director; Best Actress in a Supporting Role for Jennifer Connelly; and Best Adapted Screenplay. Russell Crowe was nominated for Best Actor in a Leading Role for playing John Nash.
Crowe reacted to the news of the Nashes' deaths in two tweets:
Grazer, who produced the Oscar-winning 2001 biopic directed by his Imagine Entertainment partner Ron Howard, realized that the end for the couple, while tragic, was in keeping with how they spent virtually every moment of their lives — together. Alicia was the grounding force that helped John overcome mental illness and other obstacles to articulating what proved to be innovative theories on incredibly complex topics.
“Their lives ended together in the same way that they lived,” Grazer told Variety. “Theirs was a such a brilliant collaboration. Alicia was so powerful in enabling him to have his moments of triumph. His life was really hard. The beauty came from the power of their love to create those triumphs.

The movie’s director, Ron Howard, tweeted, “Rip Brilliant #NobelPrize winning John Nash & and his remarkable wife Alicia. It was an honor telling part of their story #ABeautifulMind.”
Nash’s work in game theory, differential geometry, and other mathematical research were influential in economic, artificial intelligence, computer technology and a number of other fields. He shared the 1994 Nobel Prize for his work in
Academy Award winner Russell Crowe (Gladiator) makes his directorial debut on The Water Diviner, an epic and inspiring tale of one man’s life-changing journey of discovery.
Crowe also stars in the film as Australian farmer Joshua Connor, who, in 1919, goes in search of his three missing sons, last known to have fought against the Turks in the bloody Battle of Gallipoli. Arriving in Istanbul, he is thrust into a vastly different world, where he encounters others who have suffered their own losses in the conflict: Ayshe (Olga Kurylenko), a strikingly beautiful but guarded hotelier raising a child alone; her young, spirited son, Orhan (Dylan Georgiades), who finds a friend in Connor; and Major Hasan (Yilmaz Erdoğan), a Turkish officer who fought against Connor’s boys and who may be this father’s only hope.
