Wondering why times are missing?


John Madden (Shakespeare in Love) directs a script based on David Auburn's hit play. Gwyneth Paltrow headlines as the young daughter of a famed mathematician (Anthony Hopkins). She's inherited his numerical brilliance, but she's afraid she's also inherited his tenuous grip on sanity. Hope Davis plays her sister, who's only trying to help. Jake Gyllenhaal plays a former student of her father who sleeps with our protagonist, which might not help. The film comes across as a more somber version of A Beautiful Mind. It probably played more intimately on stage, but Madden gets credit for creating an intelligent, adult film. 99 minutes
