Synopsis / Plot
Obsessed with finding a truly original mathematical idea, the brilliant student John Forbes Nash (Russell Crowe) arrives at Princeton in 1947 for graduate study – as an outsider, a loner, a bit of an oddity. In a bar one night with his peers and contemplating a group of girls led by a tall blonde, the kernel of his theory on the mathematics of competition bursts forth. In contradiction of the eminent Adam Smith, Nash nonethless sticks with it and lands a coveted senior post at MIT. Here, he becomes a willing recruit as a top secret code breaker, under the control of shadowy William Parcher (Ed Harris). It is also here that he meets Alicia Larde (Jennifer Connelly) and discovers that the laws of maths are but nothing to the laws of love. His secret code breaking task takes a heavy toll, and when he is diagnosed with schizophrenia, Nash seems destroyed personally and professionally.
