Amazing. I loved this! Disappointed in myself for not seeing it earlier.
It tells the story of a very smart but troubled boy, apparently with a photographic memory, who solves an equation on a board at a university where he works. After everyone realises how smart he is they set out on a mission to help him become something better.
It was pretty long, considering nothing too crazy happened, and very predictable. That didn’t really matter though. The characters were loveable and the performances were so moving and powerful. My eyes were glued to the screen the entire time and I felt very involved in the story. There didn’t seem to be one scene that didn’t mean something. I even had a little tear or two!
Although there are big names throughout, all brilliant, none can compare to Robin Williams. A truly wonderful actor… makes me sad that he’s gone.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
