A BEAUTIFUL MIND begins with Nash (Russell Crowe) at Princeton, where he struggles to think of an original idea, and the stroke of genius that will make him matter. Nash is eccentric, socially awkward, and extremely competitive. Eventually, he finds the inspiration for his innovative and influential work on game theory. He’s chosen for a post at MIT, which includes crucial code-breaking work for the US government. There, he meets a beautiful and brilliant student, Alicia (Jennifer Connelly). They marry but their happiness is threatened, as Nash, belatedly diagnosed as schizophrenic, descends into madness. (Universal)

–Every life has great worth. With a mind and accomplishments leading to comparisons to Newton and Darwin, for many years Nash wandered Yale’s campus muttering to himself while mocked and ridiculed by students. Yet beneath the oddness was a brilliant mind and warming heart. Mental health professionals are reacting positively to this film’s humanization of mental illness.
–There is no problem without a solution I can work this out. Nash believes that through sheer determination his brilliant mind can compensate for mental illness. Mental health professionals are reacting negatively to John’s decision to go off “meds” and “reason himself” back to a semblance of normalcy. This belief in human sufficiency is the dominant view of our day and from a Judeo-Christian standpoint is a deceptive half-truth. Our mind is powerful, but finds its completion and sufficiency in God.
