Hugo discovery Asa Butterfield is superb as the young protagonist—a teen math whiz whose behavior falls along the autism spectrum—in Morgan Matthews’ perceptive, intelligent, and entertaining debut feature. Drawing from his lauded documentary on teen math prodigies, Beautiful Young Minds, Matthews’ tale follows Butterfield’s Nathan, an isolated, proud, and occasionally arrogant kid with a genius for numbers, who is persuaded to enter the International Mathematical Olympiad, a journey that takes him from the UK to Taipei and results in his first romance. Sally Hawkins, Rafe Spall, and a funny Eddie Marsan are uniformly excellent in support.

Director Biography
