[Computational Complexity] Proof
The movie Proof opens today after more than two years after a number of the scenes were filmed at the University of Chicago, some right in Ryerson (home to computer science). The movie got caught up in the Disney-Miramax divorce and is one of a half-dozen movies being released by Miramax before the September 30 separation date.
I saw the play as part of the excursion during the 2002 QIP conference and enjoyed it though I felt the mathematician's life didn't feel right, it went a bit too far on the pressure to produce.
I rarely see non-children's movies in the theaters these days so I probably won't see Proof until it is out on DVD. But let me know what you think about the film (careful about spoilers) and who makes the better mathematician: Jake Gyllenhaal (Proof) or David Krumholtz (Numb3rs).
