TCP Entry: A Beautiful Mind

Thanks to Google for the Photo
 This week's theme for TCP is all about Movies with Best Actor Award. There are so many good films that I like which won the Best Actor award. But my final choice is the movie "A Beautiful Mind" which won Russel Crowe another Best Actor award.

Here is the storyline of the movie as shown at IMDb:

"Biopic of the famed mathematician John Nash and his lifelong struggles with his mental health. Nash enrolled as a graduate student at Princeton in 1948 and almost immediately stood out as an odd duck. He devoted himself to finding something unique, a mathematical theorem that would be completely original. He kept to himself for the most part and while he went out for drinks with other students, he spends a lot of time with his roommate, Charles, who eventually becomes his best friend. John is soon a professor at MIT where he meets and eventually married a graduate student, Alicia. Over time however John begins to lose his grip on reality, eventually being institutionalized diagnosed with schizophrenia. As the depths of his imaginary world are revealed, Nash withdraws from society and it's not until the 1970s that he makes his first foray back into the world of academics, gradually returning to research and teaching. In 1994, John Nash was awarded the Nobel prize in Economics."

Russell Crowe was very effective in his portrayal John Nash, and if you have seen the movie; you would definitely feel his struggle in life. I had to shed tears in some part of the movie (I am such a cry-baby). I strongly recommend watching this film and see for yourself how great actor Russell Crowe is.

Check out other movies with Best Actor awards on other TCP Entries. I hope you could also visit me in my other home. Enjoy watching movies!
