A Beautiful Mind
Do you remember A Beautiful Mind? The film that won Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress in a Supporting Role and Best Writing from a grand total of 8 nominations including Best Actor... Russell Crowe couldn't put a foot wrong back then... The Insider, Gladiator, A Beautiful Mind, Master and Commander - although the jury's still out on Proof of Life with Meg Ryan. He's still an excellent actor with a fine track record, but this seemed to be his golden age at the dawn of the new millennium.

Ron Howard's A Beautiful Mind is a biographical drama about John Nash, a brilliant yet socially inept mathematician, who accepted secret cryptography work on Soviet codes for the government and overcame a severe mental disability to eventually win a Nobel Prize. The film's phenomenal cast includes: Jennifer Connelly in an Oscar-winning role, Ed Harris, Paul Bettany, Adam Goldberg and of course, Russell Crowe.

A Beautiful Mind succeeds in telling a real story from a unique angle, making the whole biographical element mesmerising and intriguing. The excellent performances, intelligent script and touching true story all contribute to a fine original film that beat out Gosford Park, The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring, In The Bedroom and Moulin Rouge for top honours at the Academy Awards back in 2002. A Beautiful Mind deserves a place in your DVD collection and could be yours this Friday.

A Beautiful Mind DVD is up for grabs for Fan Friday on the SPL!NG page on Facebook. If you want to stand a chance to win fantastic giveaways like this every week, join up... here.
