A Beautiful Mind (2001)
A Beautiful Mind stars Russell Crowe as brilliant mathematician John Forbes Nash, Jr. who was on the faculty of M.I.T.. On the brink of international acclaim, Nash began to manifest symptoms of parahoid schizophrenia and began to believe others were conspiring against him. He resigned from the faculty of M.I.T. and spent some 30-plus years suffering from mental disturbances and being involuntarily hospitalized. During this time he was able to occasionally do some mathematical research. His wife Alicia [played in the movie by Jennifer Connelly] stands by him during his long treatment and recovery. In 1994, Nash was awarded the Nobel Prize in Economic Science for his game theory studies on cooperative and non-cooperative games. He developed the "Nash Equilibrium" to explain behavior in non-cooperative games.
