{Proof} * * *

Who? Themos, Foteini, Melania, Frankie
Where? The Grove

Proof is an excellent movie. It simple and yet complicated at the same time, and it delivers some of the greatest performances of the season. This is the best Gwyneth Paltrow I've ever seen, she is doing a great work on this very complex character, the daughter of a great mathematician that doesn't know whether she inhereted some of his crazyness. The film has many very strong moments where I was just astounded by the acting: everything was very natural and made sense, not like "well that doesn't seem appropriate". My favorite moment is when the rock band made of math geeks performs the song "i", at which they just sit there and do nothing for 3 minutes ) since it is an imaginary song!).
