The Man Who Knew Infinity

Friday, April 29 - Thursday, August 4, 2016

Based on the untold story of one of the greatest minds of his generation, THE MAN WHO KNEW INFINITY charts the incredible life of Srinivasa Ramanujan (Slumdog Millionaire’s Dev Patel), whose genius takes him from the slums of India to Cambridge University. Spurred on by his mentor (Academy Award winner Jeremy Irons), Ramanujan overcomes racism and the rigidity of academia to revolutionize mathematics with his startlingly original theorems, in a fascinating look at how an unlikely, cross-cultural friendship changed the world.
