The Film Stage - Jared Mobarak
We aren’t given this glorious journey of a genius plucked from obscurity as much as we are the trials and tribulations of success. Brown’s film is all about the hardships thrust upon Ramanujan.
The A.V. Club - Katie Rife
This is the very definition of the kind of movie people complain that “they” don’t make anymore: a modestly budgeted, character-driven drama for adults that doesn’t insult the viewer’s intelligence or lean on shock value.
Screen International - Allan Hunter
The film is unashamedly middle-brow and sentimental but it tells such a good story that it is hard to resist.
The Telegraph - Tim Robey
Irons’s Hardy steals this film away from its ostensible hero, in part because pulling the shutters down makes him that much harder to know.
Empire - Unnamed
Well intentioned and played, this shows flashes of what could have been, but is ultimately let down by its timidity towards the maths, and fails to make the case for its own hero’s greatness.

The Man Who Knew Infinity (2015)
