Irons film gets second screening on Sunday

A feature film starring Academy Award winner Jeremy Irons is to screen in Bermuda for a second time.

The Man Who Knew Infinity will be shown on Sunday at 3pm in the Tradewinds Auditorium of the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute.

The first screening of the film, last Sunday, was completely sold out.

The film stars Irons and Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire) in a true story of the friendship between Srinivasa Ramanujan (Patel), a self-taught Indian mathematics genius who travelled to Trinity College, Cambridge — and his mentor, the brilliant and eccentric professor GH Hardy (Irons), who fought tirelessly to get Ramanujan the recognition and respect he deserved.

Set before and during the First World War, the film is the improbable true story of a unique genius whose pivotal theories propelled him from obscurity, and how he fought to show the world the genius of his mind. The film, which also stars Stephen Fry, Toby Jones and Devika Bhise, is rated ‘PG-13'.

Tickets are on sale now at the Oceans Gift Shop, BUEI, or by calling 294-0204.
