Recently, I watched a movie called “A beautiful mind”. It based on the novel by Sylvia Nasar, which tells a powerful, emotional story of John Nash (played by Russell Crowe), the genius mathematician. In the movie, John Nash is a shy, arrogant, gifted student studying in Princeton University in the late 1940s. He devoted himself into numbers and equations. After his breakthrough of Game Theory, he became a doctor and work in Princeton University. And in this period, he met a girl named Alicia and they got married. However, his life suddenly takes a turn for the worse when he is diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia. John suffered from tremendous delusions and he even tried to hurt his wife. But Alicia didn’t give up and they struggled to find a cure together. After fierce
battles with his inner self, he overcame disease and won the Nobel Prize in 1994 for his Game Theory in economics.
Before seeing this movie, I was a bit afraid that casting such a well-known actor as Russell Crowe as the main character would affect the image of John Nash, forcing the audiences to see Crowe, rather than Nash. This is a common problem when dealing with famous actors, but to my surprise, it didn't bother me much. As a movie, "A Beautiful Mind" is absolutely great, and it show us some strong views about life, including love, work, especially a positive attitude to life. In my mind, I think a person should be
persistent to his or her own belief. What’s more, through this movie
I realize the love of parents, spouse and friends is a strong power
which can cheer you up when you in desperate.
