“A Beautiful Mind” is an incredibly emotional movie based on the life of mathematician John Nash who teeters back and forth between genius and schizophrenic.
First and foremost, you must know that this movie is mostly based on fiction. The John Nash you see in the movie, and the John Nash in real life are almost completely different people. The unbreakable love in the movie is not really all that accurate because John Nash was someone who constantly cheated on his wife, Alicia, in the University bathroom. That is why Alicia leaves Nash and even skips his Nobel Prize ceremony.
Back to the movie, however, is a brilliant play on the life of a math teacher and his relationship with his students and his schizophrenia. While not very realistic, the ending where many professors come and place pens on John Nash’s table as a sign of respect is incredibly mesmerizing.
