The daughter of a brilliant but mentally disturbed mathematician, recently deceased, tries to come to grips with her possible inheritance: his insanity. Complicating matters are one of her father's ex-students, who wants to search through his papers, and her estranged sister, who shows up to help settle his affairs.
Catherine is a woman in her late twenties who is strongly devoted to her father, Robert, a brilliant and well-known mathematician whose grip on reality is beginning to slip away. As Robert descends into madness, Catherine begins to wonder if she may have inherited her father's mental illness along with his mathematical genius. When Robert's work reveals a mathematical proof of potentially historic proportions, it sets off shock waves in more ways than one.Written by

a wonderful proof of good acting!!!
When I got out of the cinema, I was still thinking about the film -how Paltrow, Gyllenhaal and Davis was near to perfection, how a good theater can be adapted to movie screen!!- I think Gwyneth Paltrow made one of her greatest decisions accepting to play Catherine,maybe she has slowed down but this is a good proof of her acting ability that she has lost nothing from her performance while she was away...
By the way, I want to say a few words to Anthony Hopkins' performance. It wasn't bad,it was very good actually but I think his performance was so alike with his previous films..
But generally, I liked the movie and the actors,plus-congratulations to John Madden for his great return...
