The cinema has always been fascinated by the world of genes, by Stephen Hawkins (just passed away) to Alan Turing. We remember the best films dedicated to them.
He has left Stephen Hawking, renowned astrophysicist who has made a fundamental contribution to science with his studies. His story has been told in several films, including one for the cinema that has even earned the Oscar for its protagonist Eddie Redman.
He is one of the many genes that really existed successfully brought to the big screen. Among others there is, for example, John Nash, Alan Turing and of course Steve Jobs. Let’s remember together the best films dedicated to genes, scientists and inventors. As you watch the movies online the options for watching the following films are there now.
The theory of everything (2014)
Directed by James Marsh, starring Eddie Redmayn as physicist, astrophysicist and British cosmologist Stephen Hawking. The latter is known above all for his studies on quantum cosmology, on the origin of the universe and on black holes.
His life (between science and feelings) is told here from the 60s, when he is still a student of the University of Cambridge. He then continued in the difficult period of the discovery of the disease that forced him to immobility and to communicate with a vocal synthesizer, or SLA. A disease that did not prevent him from continuing with his research. For her performance Eddie Redmayne won the Oscar for Best Actor.
The Imitation Game (2014)
The film, directed by Morten Tyldum, is the film adaptation of the biography of the English mathematician and cryptanalyst Alan Turing. The latter is here interpreted by Benedict Cumber batch. Turing is considered one of the fathers of information technology and artificial intelligence. Many people remember the Turing machine, antisegnana of the modern computer.
The film focuses primarily on World War II, during which he decided to put his cryptanalytic skills at the service of the United Kingdom. The persecution suffered by the British authorities because of his homosexuality is also told. The film, nominated for eight Academy Awards, was awarded for the best non-original screenplay.
A Beautiful Mind (2001)
Russell Crowe is the American mathematician John Forbes Nash jr. In the famous Ron Howard movie.
