Directed by John Madden
Cast: Gwyneth Paltrow, Jake Gyllenhaal, Anthony Hopkins, Hope Davis
Based on David Auburn’s play
If human emotions were represented by imaginary numbers, then mathematicians will have a lot of equations to die with, knowing, in their lifetime, it is impossible to prove our intelligence without qualifying our actions that mirror our stupidity in the first place. That stupid people have their own intelligence and intelligent people have their own stupidity is something we should all be grateful for, at least, at some point. Intelligence, or the lack of it, is every man’s unique torture.
