Rus­sell Crowe serves up yet another pitch- per­fect por­trayal of a com­plex real- life char­ac­ter, star­ring as gifted math­e­ma­ti­cian John Forbes Nash Jr, who tri­umphs over a lengthy bat­tle with schizophre­nia to win the No­bel Prize. This qual­ity drama is an acutely sen­si­tive and re­fresh­ingly un­sen­ti­men­tal ex­plo­ration of a de­bil­i­tat­ing men­tal ill­ness. Di­rec­tor Ron Howard shot the scenes in strict chrono­log­i­cal or­der, a rar­ity in mod­ern- day fi lm­mak­ing.
