"Richard Feynman was one of the most brilliant, attractive men of this century : an impression I have of him from his books and the things I've read about him. "Infinity" covers an eventful decade in the 1930's and 40's when he met, married,and lost Arline, to tuberculosis. During that decade, he was finishing his education, then working for the government - on the Bomb - in New Mexico, where Arline died.Matthew Broderick wrote and directed this film, and plays Feynman, and Patricia Arquette is Arline. They're both excellent. The material is necessarily poignant, but the acting is so right, almost low-key, that it never cloys. The music is right too; the composer must have been very close to Broderick's goals for the atmosphere he wanted. There are some jazzy war-years themes that bring that time, the way that time must have felt, to reality. But it's the little piano theme, associated with Arline, her prettiness, her femininity, that wins you and stays with you. And possibly moves you to tears."
