- 1. A thought-provoking, soul-stirring eye opener.Its about human weakness and the ability to triumph over it. Nash could just as easily be a lawyer, a doctor or a construction worker and the essence of the story would not change. A Beautiful Mind is consistently engrossing as a trip to the mysterious border-crossing between brilliance and madness, and as an unusual character study.

There is love and emotion involved; Awife, taking care of your baby, and the everyday joys of life.What it teaches usNightmares will continue, as long as we feed our attention to them.A Beautiful Mind is a movie about the importance of enjoying every dayof life, and not getting caught up in ridiculous theories or fantasies of afuture that may never be.
