The Man Who Knew Infinity
Dev Patel and Jeremy Irons star in this biopic of Srinivasa Ramanujan, a mathematician who quickly rises from his poor Tamil Brahmin family in Madras to become one of the most brilliant innovators of formulas and theorems in pre-war Cambridge, with the help of an English professor (Irons). Stand-out performances and strong source material take this cookie-cutter biopic to the next level.

Not an official sequel to “Fifty Shades of Grey”—you’ll have to wait until 2017 before Mr. Grey will see you again—but a spoof starring Marlon Wayans (“White Chicks”),
Kali Hawk (“Bridesmaids”) and Fred Willard (“Anchorman”). Unfunny and offensive is right: Fifty shades of fucked up that we wouldn’t recommend to anyone. Opened Jun 23.
