Watch: Asa Butterfield in New US Trailer for 'A Brilliant Young Mind'
"When somebody loves you, it means they see something in you that they think is worth something, that's value to you." Samuel Goldwyn has debuted an official US trailer for the film A Brilliant Young Mind, formerly known as X+Y as it played on the festival circuit for the last year (premiered at TIFF 2014). In the film, Asa Butterfield stars a math prodigy with autism in a coming-of-age story where he takes a trip to Seoul for a tournament as part of the United Kingdom Math Squad. The cast includes Rafe Spall as his teacher, Sally Hawkins as his mother, plus Eddie Marsan and Jo Yang. I'm still looking forward to this.
A socially awkward teenage math prodigy (Asa Butterfield) finds new confidence and new friendships when he lands a spot on the British squad at the International Mathematics Olympiad, taking him to Seoul, South Korea. A Brilliant Young Mind, formerly known as X+Y, is directed by Morgan Matthews, a TV and documentary filmmaker of past, from a screenplay written by newcomer James Graham. The film first premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year, and played at numerous festivals the world over. Samuel Goldwyn Films will release A Brilliant Young Mind in select US theaters starting September 11th this fall.
