Series: Movie Discussion Guide Bible Study
An Oscar-winning drama about love, ambition, and paranoia.
A Beautiful Mind, which won the 2001 Best Picture Academy Award, is based on the true story of John Nash, a Nobel Prize-winning mathematician. Nash graduated from Princeton after developing a revolutionary economic theory, and quickly became embroiled in what seemed to be a mysterious government conspiracy that would test his view of life, his inner strength, and his wife s love.
This study will help you discuss the deeper themes of the movie. Where does logic and love intersect? What does John Nash learn about community and self-reliance? How does the movie portray the power of temptation?
