  A BA B EAUTIFULEAUTIFUL MM INDIND  (( FILMFILM ) STORY In 1947, John Nash (Russell Crowe) arrives at Princeton University. He is co-recipient, with Martin Hansen (Josh Lucas), of the prestigious Carnegie Scholarship for mathematics. At a reception he meets a group of other promising math and science graduate students, Richard Sol(Adam Goldberg), Ainsley (Jason Gray-Stanford), and Bender (Anthony Rapp). He also meets his roommate Charles Herman (Paul Bettany), a literature student, and an unlikely friendship begins. Nash comes under increasing pressure to publish, both from the mathematics department chairmanand in the form of rivalry with Hansen. But he refuses until he finds a truly srcinal idea. Hisinspiration comes when he and his fellow graduate students discuss how to approach a group of women at a bar. Hansen quotesAdam Smithand advocates every man for himself , but Nashargues that a cooperative approach would lead to better chances of success. This leads to a newconcept of governing dynamicswhich Nash develops and publishes. On the strength of this he isoffered an appointment atMITwhere Sol and Bender join him.Some years later, Nash is invited to the Pentagontocrack  encryptedenemy telecommunication.  Nash is able to decipher the code mentally, to the astonishment of other codebreakers. Heconsiders his regular duties at MIT uninteresting and beneath his talents, so he is pleased to begiven a new assignment by the mysterious William Parcher (Ed Harris) of theUnited States  Department of Defense, to look for patterns in magazines and newspapers in order to thwartaSoviet  plot. Nash becomes increasingly obsessive about searching for these hidden patterns and  believes he is followed when he delivers his results to a secret mailbox.Meanwhile a student, Alicia Larde (Jennifer Connelly), asks him to dinner, and the two fall in love.On a return visit to Princeton, Nash runs into his former roommate Charles and meets Charles'young niece Marcee (Vivien Cardone), whom he adores. With Charles' encouragement he proposesto Alicia and they marry. Nash begins to fear for his life after witnessing a shootout between Parcher and Soviet agents. Hetells Parcher that he wants to quit his special assignment but Parcher blackmails him into staying.While delivering a guest lecture at Harvard University, Nash attempts to flee from what appear to be foreign agents, but he is forcibly sedated and sent to a psychiatric facility. He believes thefacility is run by the Soviets who are trying to extract information from him. Nash's doctor, Dr. Rosen (Christopher Plummer ) tells Alicia that he hasschizophreniaand that Charles, Marcee and Parcher only exist in Nash's imagination. Alicia investigates and finallyconfronts Nash with the unopened documents he had delivered to the secret mailbox. Nash is given  a course of  insulin shock therapyand eventually released. Frustrated with theside-effects of  the antipsychoticmedication he is taking, he secretly stops taking it. But this causes a relapse and he meets Parcher again.After an incident where Nash endangers his infant son and accidentally knocks Alicia and the babyto the ground, she flees the house in fear with their child. Nash steps in front of her car to preventher from leaving. He tells Alicia, She never gets old , referring to Marcee, who although yearshave passed since their first encounter, has remained exactly the same age and is still a little girl.With this, he finally accepts that although all three people seem real, they are in fact part of hishallucinations. Against Dr. Rosen's advice, Nash decides not to restart his medication, believingthat he can deal with his symptoms in another way. Alicia decides to stay and support him in this. Nash approaches his old friend and rival, Martin Hansen, now head of the Princeton mathematicsdepartment, who grants him permission to work out of the library and audit classes. Years pass andas Nash grows older he learns to ignore his hallucinations. Eventually he earns the privilege of teaching again.In 1994, Nash is honored by his fellow professors for his achievement in mathematics, and goes onto win the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economicsfor his revolutionary work on game theory. The movie ends as Nash and Alicia leave the auditorium in Stockholm; Nash sees Charles, Marcee, andParcher standing to one side and watching him.

Russell Crowe stars as the brilliant but arrogant and conceited professor Nash. The prof seems guaranteed a rosy future in the early '50s after he marries beautifulstudent Alicia (Jennifer Connelly) and makes a remarkable advancement in the foundations of  game theory, which carries him to the brink of international acclaim. Soon after, John is visited by Agent William Parcher (Ed Harris), from the CIA, who wants to recruit him for code-breakingactivities. But evidence suggests that Nash's perceptions of reality are cloudy at best; he isstruggling to maintain his tenuous hold on sanity, and Alicia suspects a diagnosis of paranoidschizophrenia.
