x+yTeenager Nathan Ellis (Asa Butterfield), who finds it hard to relate toĀ people, is a maths prodigy competing for a place on Britainā€™s International Mathematics Olympiad team. The directorā€™s first stab at fiction is an adaptation of his own documentary Beautiful Young Minds (2007), which followed several young, autistic maths geniuses. Turning this story into fiction has a ring of pointlessness to it because itā€™s hard to avoid what has become clichĆ©s of the genre; the real-life drama is more touching. Still, well made, with an effective low-key lead performance and good supporting efforts, especially by Rafe Spall.

2015-Britain. 111 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed byĀ Morgan Matthews. Cast: Asa Butterfield (Nathan Ellis), Rafe Spall (Martin Humphreys), Sally Hawkins (Julie Ellis), Eddie Marsan, Jo Yang, Martin McCann.

Trivia: U.S. title: A Brilliant Young Mind.
