A Beautiful Mind (2001)

Entertaining hooey. Gets a bit thick with the silly biopic cliches and the button-mashing "uplifting" moments near the end, and I can see how Ron Howard and Akiva Goldsman's fast-n-loose handling of historical and psychiatric truth could tick some people off; none of that, though, kept me from enjoying the film as an interesting story. Russell Crowe continues to impress me with his range; Jennifer Connelly keeps getting better, too, but who approved that old age makeup on her at the end?

Grade: B-
