Comox Valley Art Gallery Fall Film Festival presents A Brilliant Young Mind

Sunday, Oct. 4 at 5 p.m.

The Comox Valley Art Gallery/TIFF Fall Film Series continues on Sunday, Oct. 4 at 5 p.m. with A Brilliant Young Mind – a poignant drama from British director Morgan Matthews who was inspired by the real-life subjects of his documentary Beautiful Young Minds.

Teenaged math prodigy Nathan (Asa Butterfield, The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas) struggles with human relationships and numbers are the only things that make any sense to him. Diagnosed as being on the autism spectrum as a child, Nathan finds the world bewildering except when it comes to complex mathematical problems.

With the help of his teacher Mr. Humphreys (Rafe Spall), Nathan lands a place on Great Britain’s team at the International Mathematics Olympiad in Taipei where he and his fellow socially awkward mathletes discover that they might not be as weird as they thought themselves to be.

Warm, sensitive and compelling, A Brilliant Young Mind is about more than connecting numbers – it’s about connecting hearts.
