ABOUT THE FILM

 

Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire) and Academy Award winner Jeremy Irons star in this inspirational biopic about Srinivasa Ramanujan, the early-20th-century Indian mathematician whose groundbreaking theories revolutionized the field.

tiff.net

Based on the untold story of one of the greatest minds of his generation, The Man Who Knew Infinity charts the incredible life of Srinivasa Ramanujan (Dev Patel), whose genius for mathematics takes him from the slums of India to Cambridge University in the early 20th century. Spurred on by his mentor G. H. Hardy (Jeremy Irons), Ramanujan overcomes racism and the rigidity of academia to revolutionize the field with his startlingly original theorems, which he attributes to divine inspiration.

—IFC Films

Highly engaging performaces by Dev Patel and Jeremy Irons...

—Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter

Dev Patel and Jeremy Irons excel in this unusual but true story. The Man Who Knew Infinity is a timeless tale of immense dedication to one's passion and the strong bonds of friendship.

—Jeanne Kaplan, Kaplan vs. Kaplan

This film fully belongs to Patel and Irons, who have two of the best roles in their careers.

ABOUT THE FILM

 

Sold is a narrative, feature film adaptation of the globally acclaimed novel by Patricia McCormick. Based on true stories, Sold, is the story of Lakshmi, who journeys from a pastoral, rural village in Nepal to a gritty brothel/prison called Happiness House in Kolkata, India. Through one extraordinary girl's story, Sold illustrates the brutality of child trafficking, which affects millions of children around the globe every year. Globally the average age of a trafficked girl is thirteen, the same age as the girl in the film. Sold is a call to action, and a testament to the power and resilience of the human spirit.

[The director] does his best to suggest the lighter side of the subject, especially in a furiously choreographed Bollywood number that captures the heroine's rare moments of joy.

—John Harti, Seattle Times

The film gives us a vibrant, tangible sense of place, the color and dust of a crowded ancient city, and the layers of secrecy and corruption under which Lakshmi and those like her are trapped.

ABOUT THE FILM

 

The Meddler transcends its cutesy title and familiar premise with a heartfelt look at family dynamics that's honored by a marvelous performance from Susan Sarandon.

—www.rottentomatoes.com

With a new iPhone, an apartment near the Grove, and a comfortable bank account left to her by her beloved late husband, Marnie Minervini (Susan Sarandon) has happily relocated from New Jersey to LosAngeles to be near her daughter Lori (Rose Byrne), a successful (but still single) screenwriter, and smother her with motherly love. But when the dozens of texts, unexpected visits, and conversations dominated by unsolicited advice force Lori to draw strict personal boundaries, Marnie finds ways to channel her eternal optimism and forceful generosity to change the lives of others—as well as her own—and find a new purpose in life.

—www.sonyclassics.com

Charming, insightful and funny, The Meddler takes familiar material (the mother from Hell and the daughter from Hunger) and infuses it with affectionate, slap-your-thigh humor. It also crowns Susan Sarandon with one of her most endearingly irresistible roles in years.

—Rex Reed, New York Observer

The Meddler offers a charming, authentic and well-observed mix of comedy and poignancy.

—Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
