From the heights of notoriety to the depths of depravity, John Forbes Nash, Jr. experienced it all. A mathematical genius, he made an astonishing discovery early in his career and stood on the brink of international acclaim. But the handsome and arrogant Nash soon found himself on a painful and harrowing journey of self-discovery. After many years of struggle, he eventually triumphed over his tragedy, and finally - late in life - received the Nobel Prize.Written by

The initial theatrical release (as well as the Canadian VHS equivalent) has the E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982) 20th Anniversary variation of the Universal Pictures logo. Subsequent prints, starting from the home media releases, replaced the variant with the Universal Studios Home Video logo. See more »
Ed Harris, Russel Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, and Paul Bettany were terrific.
The film had great balance and is worth a viewing.
The story boldly addresses mental illness as a handicap.
Because of the quality of the acting and directing, this movie is a beacon of hope for people of all disabilities. The film illustrates to the viewer how deeply a handicap can infiltrate the domestic, professional, and personal lives of those unfortunate to have these types of issues. I hope Ron Howard and the acting crew can get together again for something similar. This was a great film, that also serves an important role for awareness to people that might not understand how deeply debilitating these issues can be, and also gets the message across that not all should be marginalized.
