The Man Who Knew Infinity Trailer

"Don't you know what I've given up to be here! I have nothing." Warner Bros in the UK has unveiled a trailer for a film called The Man Who Knows Infinity, about a young Indian boy, played by Dev Patel, studying at Cambridge University during WWI. The full ensemble cast includes Jeremy Irons, Stephen Fry, Toby Jones, Jeremy Northam, Kevin McNally, Enzo Cilenti, Shazad Latif, and introducing Devika Bhise. This is such an intriguing title for a film about a mathematician, I'm curious based on that alone, but the footage seems like it could go either way - good or bad. We would've heard more praise out of TIFF if it was really something, but I'm still interested to see Dev Patel's performance in this anyway. Enjoy.

Here's the first official trailer for Matt Brown's The Man Who Knew Infinity, from WB UK's YouTube:

Colonial India, 1913. Srinavasa Ramanujan (Dev Patel) is a 25-year-old shipping clerk and self-taught genius, who failed out of college due to his near-obsessive, solitary study of mathematics. Determined to pursue his passion despite rejection and derision from his peers, Ramanujan writes a letter to G. H. Hardy (Jeremy Irons), an eminent British mathematics professor at Trinity College, Cambridge. Hardy recognises the originality and brilliance of Ramanujan’s raw talent and despite the skepticism of his colleagues, undertakes bringing him to Cambridge so that his theories can be explored. The Man Who Knew Infinity is both written & directed by Matt Brown, of only Ropewalk previously. The film premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in 2015, and opens in the UK this April. IFC releases in the US on April 29th.

Irons looks solid as always. But Patel...he needs to find something great again.
