    Enjoyable to a certain extent, not very effective or catchy.

    This movie deserves more attention. The acting, the script and the directing are excellent. I enjoyed every moment of it.

    I like the way the film is directed and simple, besides the fact that the anguish brought by the character is magnificent

    Brilliant film. Outrageous directing. A lot of emotions revealed that it reflects a remarkably moving story.

    Asa Butterfield and the luminous Sally Hawkins shine in this warm tender story of a young autistic math genius and his wonderful, understanding mother dealing with the death of her husband and her son's inability to show any affection, until he goes to the International Math Olympics.

    This fine British film is a fictional/fact movie version of the documentary production ‘Beautiful Young Minds' which was in turn about the real-life Math prodigy Daniel Lightwing. Asa Butterfield is perfect in the title role and has a strong cast of professional performers to compliment his performance. Prolific playwright James Graham's debut screenplay is exceptional in almost every detail and carries the viewer through a rollercoaster ride of human emotions - as his youthful characters, etc, navigate unfamiliar human experiences. Solid direction and stylish cinematography keep it all on track, with Martin Phipps' haunting music score nicely setting the moods for each scene. Sally Hawkins gives yet another of her introspective performance as Butterfield's widowed mother - with good support from Rafe Spall (Life of Pi) as Butterfield's somewhat tortured mentor. Superior entertainment for discerning viewers, with its DVD release big on transfer quality.

    It was rather slow moving and boring. Listed as a comedy-drama, but I did not see any comedy. It was a shallow movie with no character development. I found it hideous and trite. Nathaniel never develops and remains stagnate. There is no excitement or anything to draw the viewer in. It passed the time, but certainly not a great movie by any stretch of the imagination.

    Some good performances here and it probably shows the more realistic side of the loneliness in high-functioning autism but this ultimately boils down to predictable sap.
