The Man Who Knew Infinity


Great knowledge comes from the humblest of origins.

In the tradition of The Imitation Game, The Theory of Everything and A Beautiful Mind, comes THE MAN WHO KNEW INFINITY. Dev Patel brings to life the story of self-taught mathematical genius, Srinivasa Ramanujan - a man many believed could decipher the very fabric of the universe - possibly existence itself.

Ramanujan was working as a clerk in Madras, India under Sir Francis Spring (Stephen Fry). Spring helped Ramanujan make first contact with Cambridge professor, G.H. Hardy (Jeremy Irons) who, upon discovering Ramanujan’s potential set about bringing him to England. Along with Cambridge Fellow, John Littlewood, (Toby Jones) Hardy championed and worked with him to bring his genius to light.

This is more than a story of just numbers, but rather one that celebrates determination, destiny, passion, spirituality and the power of love & friendship.



"The script is intelligent and sharp, full of seriousness and humour." The Australian

"The Man Who Knew Infinity stands on its own merit, thanks in great measure to Patel and Irons, who give us two engaging characters." Chicago Sun-Times
