The Man Who Knew Infinity


Somerset Moviola and the Nunney Village Hall Committee present The Man Who Knew Infinity, on Friday 9 September at Nunney village hall.

TheManWhoKnewInfinity_web_smallThe Man Who Knew Infinity is a 2015 British biographical drama film based on the 1991 book of the same name by Robert Kanigel.

The film stars Dev Patel as a self-taught Maths genius brought up in the slums of Madras in the early 1900s, who gains a place at Cambridge in World War I.

Here he becomes a pioneer in mathematical theories with the guidance of his professor, G. H. Hardy (played by Jeremy Irons despite Hardy being only 10 years older than Ramanujan).

The film was shot on location at Trinity College, Cambridge.

The Man Who Knew Infinity has a 12A rating. Films rated 12A are suitable for children aged 12 and over. However, people younger than 12 may see a 12A so long as they are accompanied by an adult. In such circumstances, responsibility for allowing a child under 12 to view lies with the accompanying adult.

The Man Who Knew Infinity is shown at Nunney Village Hall on Friday 9 September at 7.30pm. Door open at 7.00pm. Seats cannot be reserved, so please come early.

Tickets cost £5.00 in advance at the SPAR shop in Nunney or £6.00 on the door. A licensed bar and ice creams will be available.

Please avoid disappointment by buying your ticket in advance; there are only 70 tickets available!
