A Beautiful Mind , American biographical film , released in , that told the story of American Nobel Prize winner John Nash , whose innovative work on game theory in mathematics was in many ways overshadowed by decades of mental illness. Nash is arrogant and dismissive of his classmates but gets along with his roommate Charles Paul Bettany.

Nash generally pursues his studies alone but, when Charles suggests that he take a break and go to a bar, Nash agrees. Nash later receives an appointment to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology , where Sol and Bender become his assistants. A few years later, he is asked to the Pentagon to decrypt coded Russian communications.

Parcher visits Nash to enlist him in a group of workers who scan newspapers and magazines to find hidden Russian codes embedded in the text. Nash is to leave deciphered codes in a secret drop box for Parcher. The clandestine work makes Nash nervous, but he is cheered when he reunites with his former roommate Charles.

He marries Alicia soon thereafter. Some time later, Nash gets caught up in a gun battle between Parcher and several Russian agents. Terrified, he asks Parcher to be relieved of his asment, but Parcher tells him that he would be killed if he were to quit. While giving a lecture at Harvard University , Nash sees Charles in the audience but then spots Russian agents as well, and he flees.

Nash is captured, sedated, and sent to a psychiatric facility under the care of Dr. Rosen Christopher Plummer. Nash receives therapy, and Nash, Alicia, and their son move to Princeton. The medication makes Nash lethargic , however, and eventually he stops taking his pills. After he knocks Alicia to the ground when Parcher urges him to kill her, he and Alicia decide to find a way to live with his illness.

After that, although Nash continues to see Parcher and Charles, he no longer interacts with them. Eventually, he is able to return to teaching, and in he receives the Nobel Prize. The screenwriter, Akiva Goldsman, conceived of the visual hallucinations as a method for giving the viewer the sensation of experiencing delusions. Though in reality Nash apparently had a remission of his mental illness, in the movie the character says that he is taking a newer medicine. This was a choice made by the director in order not to give the impression that abandoning medication was an appropriate method of dealing with schizophrenia.
