A Brilliant Madness


A Brilliant Madness is the true story behind the famous A Beautiful Mind movie, the story of brilliant mathematician John Nash. Diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia at the age of 30, he was in and out of psychiatric hospitals for the next 30 years, and, after he showed signs of recovery, received a Nobel prize for his early discoveries.
