This heart- warm­ing Bri­tish in­die film fol­lows the un­con­ven­tional and hi­lar­i­ous re­la­tion­ship be­tween stu­dent and teacher as an autis­tic maths prodigy ( Asa But­ter­field, pic­tured) copes with the loss of his fa­ther, and finds sup­port when he’s se­lected for the Bri­tish team of the In­ter­na­tional Maths Olympiad. But­ter­field is com­mend­able as Nathan, a de­tached but sen­si­tive boy, who al­ways seems to be look­ing in on the world as an out­sider un­til love blos­soms with a fel­low maths whizz ( Jo Yang). An up­lift­ing tale, its sweet­ness makes it mem­o­rable.
