MOVIE: Proof

If this surprisingly-good movie graced the big screen, I completely missed it. However I picked it up based on an obscure web recommendation and thoroughly enjoyed it.

In Proof, a daughter (Gwyneth Paltrow) comes to the aid of her dying father (Anthony Hopkins), a brilliant math professor who's lost his grip on reality.

The movie turned out to be a very interesting demonstration on the creation of a mathematical theorem. While that understandably sounds extremely boring, the writing was fantastic, the acting was well done, the dialogs and pacing were great, and there were actually some surprising moments that caught me off guard.

Very engaging movie. Likely a good date flick. Likely not good for the ADD crowd (ie: kids). A remarkable piece of cinema that should have made a bigger public splash than it did.
