That was positively the case with 2014’s “The Theory of Everything,” with Eddie Redmayne in his Oscar-winning part as astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, and “The Imitation Game” that same year, including Benedict Cumberbatch’s Oscar-selected performance as World War II code breaker Alan Turing. Furthermore, despite the fact that he was principally a result of Silicon Valley, include 2015’s “Steve Jobs” featuring the Oscar-named Michael Fassbender to the rundown.
Presently arrives “The Man Who Knew Infinity,” which at first glance resembles a possibly rich minor departure from this smarty-pants reality based type. The pioneer this time is Srinivasa Ramanujan, a self-trained Indian mathematician whose commitments to the field were viewed as sufficiently enormous to have propelled a Google doodle on the 125th commemoration of his introduction to the world in 2012. We are told right off the bat that he is “the most romantic figure in the late history of science,” which is a significant charging to satisfy.
