The Man who saw Infinity

My daughter had been wailing about some basic arithmetic, so this movie about a man who was personal friends with each of the positive integers was a strange experience. I'd been vaguely familiar with Ramanujan, but wasn't aware of the sad details of his life - the racism he met in England and the betrayal by his own mother back in India. Mathematical formulae came to him as divine inspirations. British mathematician Hardy made him prove his intuitions to be acceptable to Western mathematicians. I did not learn any math in this movie, but they went through a lot of paper.
