Here’s a new trailer for an upcoming movie called “The Man Who Knew Infinity”, starring Dev Patel, Jeremy Irons, Devika Bhise, Stephen Fry and Toby Jones. No, it’s not a sequel to Hitchcocks’ 1956 classic “The Man Who Knew Too Much”, instead it’s based on a true story about a shipping clerk and self-taught genius (Patel) living in Colonial India in 1931 who travels across the world in order to study mathematics at Cambridge. Once in Britain his battles to overcome skepticism, illness and prejudice are contrasted with support from an eminent British maths Professor, G.H. Hardy played by Jeremy Irons.
The Man Who Knew Infinity is out in UK cinemas on April 8th
