    And the film also tells you sandals in cold Cambridge is not a good idea.....

    The voices from mathmo world on the film.
    "The film has been praised by mathematicians and scientists for its authentic portrayal of theoretical mathematicians. Instead of a perfunctory treatment of mathematics, the film engaged the mathematicians Ken Ono and Manjul Bhargava to get the mathematics right. George E. Andrews, former President of the American Mathematical Society praised the film for its moving portrayal of the deep relationship between Ramanujan and Hardy.[13] The London Mathematical Societyproclaimed that the film "outshines Good Will Hunting in almost every way".[14] Reviewing the film for Nature, Andrew Robinson wrote that "the film took more than ten years to create. It is worth the wait."[15] "

    I haven't seen it but I doubt that any "similar" film can outshine Good Will Hunting!

    Good Will Hunting is too American to my liking, with obligatory happy ending.
    (If I were to choose an American film with education-related theme, Dead Poet Society is hands-down for me. No competition. )

    I prefer less glossy, subtle tone of British films.
    It was really beautifully made.
    Some of the scenes were just like watching beautiful paintings.
    And the story is quite poignant. It remains with you.

    Alas, I did know that; I was myself reaffirming your own knowledge of my knowledge of your knowledge, which I assume you also know?

    I did know, but I cannot say that I know anymore, alas, I cannot guarantee my knowledge in the future. And you know who caused this to be.

    Idk.

    I give up.
