A seasoned FBI agent pursues Frank Abagnale Jr. who, before his 19th birthday, successfully forged millions of dollars' worth of checks while posing as a Pan Am pilot, a doctor, and a legal prosecutor.
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 Pentagon office scene was filmed in the basement of Keating Hall on Fordham University's Bronx campus (the same room was used in the filming of the Georgetown University language lab scene in The Exorcist (1973)). See more »
The student's "bad" tie shows stars and double helices. Although someone might have drawn those patterns already before the late 1940s when this scene takes place, the double helix as scientific symbol had its breakthrough not until 1953. See more »
Mathematicians won the war. Mathematicians broke the Japanese codes... and built the A-bomb. Mathematicians... like you. The stated goal of the Soviets is global Communism. In medicine or economics, in technology or space, battle lines are being drawn. To triumph, we need results. Publishable, applicable results. Now who among you will be the next Morse? The next Einstein? Who among you will be the vanguard of democracy, freedom, and discovery? Today, we bequeath America's future ...

"A Beautiful Mind" is a terrible thing to waste your time on
I cannot believe the people that rave about this movie. "A Beautiful Mind" is a terrible thing to waste your time on. The movie's direction is manipulative and the screenplay is horrid. I thought this was suppose to be based on the true life of John Nash. Didn't his wife divorce him in real life? Yes, she did. Wasn't Nash a homosexual? (Nash says no, but.) Yeah, right, Mr. Nash. Let's not use truths here let's just make up some stuff that an audience will like. Well, Hollywood, I might have liked the movie more if his wife had divorced him or if there was a homosexual tinge to the film. I needed to feel for the character and all this character was is a jerk. Hell, he says it himself, "I have a chip on both shoulders". The movie makes him come off as a womanizing jerk. How can I care about him. Well, because Hollywood says we should feel for him and the media says it is a great film. That's why we like it. Give me a break. I know this day will never come, but, I sure wish it would, when will people learn to make there own decisions about movies, music and tv shows, etc. instead of allowing themselves to be conned into liking something just because the media says it is good. And, don't get me started on the Academy Awards because all that is now is a popularity contest. The best films or actors or screenplays, whatever, might get nominated but they don't have a chance in hell winning, ie. "Memento", "Ghost World", "Mulholland Drive", etc.
