It is 1947 and John Forbes Nash, Jr. (Russell Crowe) has arrived at Princeton for graduate study in mathematics. “The mysterious West Virginia genius” has no prep school legacy or old money ties to cushion his entry into the Ivy League – just Princeton’s most prestigious fellowship to signify that he does indeed belong.

It’s not an easy fit for Nash, or for Princeton. Social niceties mean nothing to him; neither does attending class. He is obsessed with just one thing: finding a truly original idea. That, he’s convinced, is the only way he will ever matter.

Princeton’s math department is brutally competitive and some of Nash’s classmates would love to see him fail. Still, they tolerate him, and inadvertently incite him to greatness. He’s with them one night in a local bar when their reaction to a hot blonde grabs his attention. As Nash observes their rivalry, the idea that has been haunting him bursts into focus. His resulting paper on game theory – the mathematics of competition – boldly contradicts the doctrines of Adam Smith, the father of modern economics. One-hundred-fifty years of accepted thought is abruptly outdated, and Nash’s life is changed forever.

Nash subsequently wins a coveted research and teaching post at MIT, but is not satisfied. Science had played a huge role in bringing about America’s triumph in World War II, and now, as the Cold War rages, Nash yearns to play a role in this new conflict. His wish is granted when the shadowy William Parcher (Ed Harris) recruits him for a top-secret assignment as an enemy code-breaker.

Nash throws himself into this consuming effort while continuing his work at MIT. It is there that he is challenged in an altogether new way by the beautiful and brilliant Alicia Larde (Jennifer Connelly), a physics student who introduces Nash to a concept he’d never seriously considered – love.

Nash and Alicia marry, but he cannot confide the dangerous project he has undertaken for Parcher. The work, the secrecy and the danger take their toll. Nash is furtive, obsessed and finally lost in a world of overpowering delusions. The diagnosis is paranoid schizophrenia.

Devastated by the implications %9%9%9 of her husband’s condition, Alicia struggles under the strain %9%9%9 of loving a broken genius. The 'glamorous couple' of their courtship %9%9%9 has vanished and each day seems to bring new horror. But Alicia %9%9%9 can still glimpse the charismatic man she fell in love with, and %9%9%9 that fuels her commitment to him. Inspired by her unwavering love %9%9%9 and faith, Nash finally decides to fight a disease thought to be %9%9%9 not only incurable, but degenerative.

This humbled Nash has simpler goals, but they are even harder to achieve. Still burdened by demons, still driven by the intoxicating demands of mathematical theory, he is determined to find his own kind of normalcy. Through sheer force of will, he continues his work and in 1994, receives the Nobel Prize. By then, his insightful work in game theory has become one of the most influential ideas of the twentieth century, while Nash has become a man with a beautiful heart, as well as a beautiful mind.

Imagine Entertainment’s %9%9%9 A Beautiful Mind is a Universal Pictures and DreamWorks Pictures %9%9%9 co-production. Directed by Ron Howard, produced by Brian Grazer %9%9%9 and written by Akiva Goldsman, the film stars Oscar® %9%9%9 winner Russell Crowe (Gladiator), Oscar® %9%9%9 nominee Ed Harris (Pollock, Apollo 13) and Jennifer Connelly (Requiem %9%9%9 For A Dream).

The cast also includes Paul Bettany (A Knight’s Tale), Adam Goldberg (Saving Private Ryan), Judd Hirsch (Running on Empty), Josh Lucas (You Can Count on Me), Anthony Rapp (Road Trip), newcomer Vivien Cardone and Christopher Plummer (The Insider).

The production team includes %9%9%9 director of photography Roger Deakins (Oscar®-nominated %9%9%9 for O Brother, Where Art Thou?), production designer Wynn Thomas %9%9%9 (Analyze This), editors Mike Hill and Dan Hanley, winners of the %9%9%9 Academy Award® for Best Editing for their %9%9%9 work on Ron Howard and Brian Grazer's Apollo 13, costume designer %9%9%9 Rita Ryack (Oscar®-nominated for Dr. Seuss' %9%9%9 How the Grinch Stole Christmas), and composer James Horner (an Oscar® %9%9%9 winner for Titanic). The film’s executive producers are Karen %9%9%9 Kehela (Nutty Professor II: The Klumps) and Todd Hallowell (The %9%9%9 Grinch).
