This highly engaging film explores the fine line between genius and madness. A renowned math professor (Anthony Hopkins) has an equally if not more gifted daughter (Gwyneth Paltrow) who questions her own sanity and whether she is the true author of a ground-breaking proof in her father’s notebooks. A research assistant (Jake Gylenhall) may or may not be pretending romantic interest to steal the proof to claim as his own. Instructor Paul Marino will introduce the film, raise questions to ponder and host a post-viewing discussion.
