A Brilliant Young MindIn a world difficult to comprehend, Nathan struggles to connect with those around him - most of all his loving mother - but finds comfort in numbers. When Nathan is taken under the wing of unconventional and anarchic teacher, Mr. Humphreys, the pair forge an unusual friendship and Nathan's talents win him a place on the UK team at the International Mathematics Olympiad. From suburban England to bustling Taipei and back again, Nathan builds complex relationships as he is confronted by the irrational nature of love.

Critic Reviews of "A Brilliant Young Mind"Minneapolis Star TribuneOctober 01, 2015
It is a fully realized love story of rare spirit, the sort of deeply affecting film that can make you laugh until you are near tears, then drive you close to bawling.Boston GlobeSeptember 24, 2015
Parents and teachers of all the Nathans out there may be inclined to give "A Brilliant Young Mind" the full four stars; for the rest of us, it's small, smart, and satisfying.Chicago Sun-TimesSeptember 24, 2015
Long after you've seen the film, you'll remember the wonderfully nuanced work of the cast, particularly Ms. Hawkins.Chicago ReaderSeptember 24, 2015
A strong cast elevates this sweet British drama.Washington PostSeptember 17, 2015
"A Brilliant Young Mind" is less stuffy than the usual cinematic ode to British smarts and schooling. But that still can't save this tale of eccentric genius from being profoundly conventional.Christian Science MonitorSeptember 11, 2015
Hawkins gives a performance of remarkable grace and sensitivity.Chesapeake Family MagazineAugust 02, 2016
The touching A Brilliant Young Mind, about a teen boy with autism, features strong performances that make it more memorable than you would initially expect.Rip It UpJune 08, 2016
It's pleasingly moving.New Zealand HeraldApril 27, 2016
A loss of focus turns this small English feature from an excellent film into a routine and mediocre one about half-way through, but its opening reels have touches of understated genius about them and it is full of undeniably moving moments.The Film StageMarch 12, 2016
A confidently directed version of an underdog story that we've seen before.The Canberra Times (Australia)December 14, 2015
Matthews' direction is perfect. Yes, he manipulates you throughout, but nothing is milked, there is great subtlety, and his settings in Taiwan and at Cambridge are deftly shot by Les Miserables and The King's Speech cinematographer Danny Cohen.The Big IssueDecember 12, 2015
Given [that the film] is concerned with the rigid certainties of algebraic formulation, its winning formula -- mixing charm, low-key humour, on-screen chemistry and emotional delicacy -- is altogether more ineffable.
