If you want a typical love story, go see something else. I credit Gwyneth and the director with making this work so well. Is it a film about genius? I didn’t see the David Auburn play on which the movie is based, and maybe many of the film’s detractors have: Sir Anthony Hopkins role, while relatively small, is crucial to the film. The daughter of a brilliant but mentally disturbed mathematician, recently deceased, tries to come to grips with her possible inheritance: Ignore this rather small point, and this movie passes with flying colours.
I credit Gwyneth and the director with making this work so well. This is a movie about how a daughter, her sister, and a grad student deal with the passing of a great mathematician. In my view, this is chiefly the fault of the screenplay but to a lesser extent in the actor’s portrayal. This movie stands on its own. Thank goodness she was selected over the bitter Mary Louise Parker. Her character dances between mourning, anger, remorse, confusion, fear, vulnerability, sadness, and just a little bit of love.
The assembled supporting cast is impressive in name; however, Sir Anthony Hopkins is solid, but not great in the relatively small, but crucial role as Paltrow’s once genius, then insane, now dead father. I highly recommend this film. Hope Davis and Jake Gyllenhaal also gave solid performances, but their as with Hopkin’s role were really nothing more than support Paltrow. Rarely do we get to see a film based on a Pulitzer Prize and Tony award winning story by David Auburn.
Jake Gyllenhaal, although a fine actor, is totally miscast as Hopkins’ former student who tries to secure the legacy.
This film is about death, love, and mental incapacity. Gwyneth Paltrow and Anthony Hopkins give exceptional performances in a film that intelligently tackles the territory between madness and genius.
This would be a shame as she is only scratching prolf surface of her talents and artistry. While there may be similarities with ‘A Beautiful Mind’ and even ‘Good Will Hunting’, knowing there are any such links didn’t help me with this movie and Prooof think actually does a dis-service. It does tend to jump the expectations a bit! Ignore this rather small point, and this movie passes with flying colours. For a film that revolves around brilliant mathematical proofs, there’s an almost painful scarcity of and real math in the film.
Good things aside, the one thing that irked me about prooof film, was that given the strong link to mathematics, how unbelievable some of the dialogue was regarding the ‘math.
It is a fine film, definitely worth seeing, but it will probably leave you feeling a bit empty. The male actors have less to do overall, but the roles are perfectly subtitlrs. This movie stands on its own. Is it a film of self-discovery?
If you want an intelligent well written and presented story of substance involving a a adxo experiencing a roller-coaster of emotions, Proof may be for you. Language Set favourite s Login. In fact, certain words or phrases are reused and have an uncanny allusion to when they were previously said. Her honesty and the emotional territory she portrayals are “proof” of her integrity as an actress.
The acting in this film is its major attribute, and director John Madden is wise enough to realize the talent of his ensemble and stand out of their way.
Her character dances between mourning, anger, remorse, confusion, fear, vulnerability, sadness, and just a little bit of love.

Hope Davis is perfect as the irritating sister of Paltrow who has “been working 14 hour days” for 5 years while Paltrow cared for dear old nutty dad. He plays a bit with chronology and lets the pieces of his story click into place subtitlds like a math puzzle; I don’t know whether or not this is original to the film or borrowed from the play, but either way it works well.
Like Robert Redford’s “Ordinary People,” if you have any exposure to similar family dynamics, you know the team that put the film together got everything just right. What prevents the film from being great is that it never decides what it is about. But mostly, he lets the actors strut their stuff, and the four principals make the most of meaty roles. Is it a film about genius?
I’ve never experienced such an organic link between phrases separated in time in a movie before. There are shots of seemingly random equations scrawled across paper or a blackboard, and the odd conversation making reference to some known mathematical law or theorem, but I would have liked more.
All of these are touched on, but none are hit head-on.
I feel very cheated having read recently that she is contemplating giving up acting to enjoy her life and family. Ignore any such comparisons.

His influence on her life is beyond question and how she deals is the heart of the story. There are bound to be endless cliches, comparisons, and parallels drawn with Ron Howard’s “A Beautiful Mind”, so I won’t go there.
If you want a mindless film, go see something else. But it’s easily one of the best movies I’ve seen this year. Once the “great mind” of our genius is “gone” — who are we? Jake Gyllenhaal’s was strong, but perhaps not to the level of his rather awesome performance in Brokeback Mountain.
IF you want a happy film, go see something else. In my view, this is chiefly the fault of the screenplay but to a lesser extent in the actor’s portrayal. There are facets of this story that we have seen on screen before in such fine films as “A Beautiful Mind”, “Shine” and “Good Will Hunting”.
I don’t know that Paltrow has yet had a role as substantial as this one, and she flexes her acting chops in a way I have not seen her do outside of her underrated performance in “Sylvia. This is a movie about how a daughter, her sister, and a grad student deal with the passing of a great mathematician. If you want a typical love story, go see something else. I love a movie in which every moment of it feels authentic, and “Proof” is that kind of movie.
Complicating matters are one of her father’s ex-students who wants to search through his papers and her estranged sister who shows up to help settle his affairs.
