About the Film

In the tradition of ‘The Imitation Game’, ‘The Theory of Everything’ and ‘A Beautiful Mind’ – ‘The Man Who Knew Infinity’ leaps straight from the history books to the big screen to deliver an amazing true story about the genius of one man – self-taught mathematical icon, Srinivasa Ramanujan. Not only a story of numbers, but one of determination, passion, spirituality and the power of love & friendship.

In ‘The Man Who Knew Infinity’, Dev Patel stars alongside Jeremy Irons and explores the brilliance of a man many believed could decipher the very fabric of the universe – possibly existence itself.  Driven by his destiny for a greater calling, Ramanujan’s (Patel) life was turned upside down when Cambridge professor, G.H. Hardy (Irons) discovered his talents and plucked him from obscurity in his homeland of India. The pair would go on to become unlikely friends and make up one of history’s most bewildering and productive collaborations. As mathematicians they worked on the most complex problems known to man and much of Ramanujan’s work is still relevant in maths and science today.
