‘The Man Who Knew Infinity’ screens November 22, 2016 in Fenelon Falls

Genius can grow anywhere, and for a self-taught man in rural India who understood math in groundbreaking detail, a transplant to Cambridge University in England was the key to sharing his discoveries with the world. On November 22, 2016 Films by the Falls rounds out their fall season with The Man Who Knew Infinity, a biographical account of the great mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan, played by Dev Patel, and the time he spent on the famous Trinity College campus with Professor G. H. Hardy, portrayed by Jeremy Irons.
