Reviews

Brits BBC-drama uit 2014 met onder meer Asa Butterfield (Hugo), Rafe Spall en Sally Hawkins (Happy go lucky, Paddington). Als zijn vader plotseling komt te overlijden trekt de licht autistische tiener Nathan (Butterfield) zich sociaal terug. Zefs moeder Julie (Hawkins) houdt hij op afstand. Zijn docent Mr. Humpreys ontdekt zijn wiskundeknobbel en begeleidt hem naar deelname aan de Internationale Wiskunde Olympiade. Bij de training in Taiwan onmoet het aantrekkelijke meisje Zhang Mei. Nathan moet zijn veilige schulp verlaten. De film wordt hartverwarmend en sterk genoemd, ondanks de soms clichématige plotwendingen. 'It's a delicate and perceptive film', zegt Sandra Hall (Sydney Morning Herald 5-4-'15) en geeft 3,5 ster. 'Lovely performances from Rafe Spall, Sally Hawkins and Asa Butterfield drive this drama', vindt Mark Kermode (Theguardian.com 15-3-'15). Hij geeft 3 sterren. En Allan Brown (Moviereviewworld.com 23-2-'15) vindt het een 'impressive, unconventional, coming of age drama.'
