X+Y "A Brilliant Young Mind" (2014) - Director Morgan Matthews
This film tell about Nathan Ellis, a 9-year-old math prodigy, has just lost his father in a car accident. Nathan is diagnosed with autism early in the film, but strangely, his father was the only one who was able to connect normally with him. Although Nathan values his mother, Julie, he shuns any physical contact with her and treats her as more of a caretaker than a parent. Wanting to make sure Nathan isn’t distracted from his studies, Julie enrolls him in advanced classes at a new school. There, he comes under the tutelage of teacher Martin, also a math genius, who now suffers from multiple sclerosis. Martin sees himself in Nathan, once a promising young mind in the field of mathematics, who gave it all up once he was diagnosed with his illness.
Seven years later, Martin is preparing Nathan to compete for a place in the International Mathematical Olympiad, a prestigious high school competition consisting of the world’s best young mathematicians. This year, it is to be held at Cambridge, after a two-week math camp in Taiwan where the students will study for the test that determines the winners. Nathan fears he’s not good enough to qualify but ends up doing well enough to accompany 15 other British teenagers to Taiwan.
In the movie, Sally Hawkins play Julie, Nathan's mum. Her husband 'Nathan's father' was died when Nathan was young. Although Nathan's mother, Nathan often shy away from her. So she always tried to be with Nathan. At the end of the film, Julie and Martin fall in love. This is a loving mother and always loves Nathan. I really love Julie.
This is good, cute film. I like it.
