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.

Fifty Shades of Black

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.
