Rating: 1.5/4 -- With one exception, Nathan's relationships with people go nowhere. Whether it's his mother, his father, his mentor, or his fellow students, there's virtually no difference in how they relate to him between the first time we see them and the last. Full Review

[T]his story of the emotional complexities faced by a teenage math prodigy is the accessible, affecting coming-of-age narrative you expect it to be. But it is something more as well.

Parents and teachers of all the Nathans out there may be inclined to give "A Brilliant Young Mind" the full four stars; for the rest of us, it's small, smart, and satisfying. Full Review

Rating: 2/4 -- "A Brilliant Young Mind" is less stuffy than the usual cinematic ode to British smarts and schooling. But that still can't save this tale of eccentric genius from being profoundly conventional. Full Review

This warm, robust movie ultimately transcends the formulas with which it flirts to become a far more subtle and honest result...

Product Description:

A shy math whiz kid finds a highly rewarding outlet for his skills in this inspiring and humorous drama. Teenager Nathan Ellis (Asa Butterfield) finds it difficult to interact with his peers socially, but is able to solve complex math problems with ease. Nathan's math prowess earns him an invitation to join the British team at the International Mathematics Olympiad, and gives him a whole new venue to showcase his abilities. The film co-stars Rafe Spall, Sally Hawkins and Eddie Marsan.
