Brilliant Young Mind, A

Rating = C+

This is a highly contrived story of a brilliant young (male) math prodigy with no social skills, whose father has died, who treats his mother badly, and whose math tutor (himself once a prodigy) has sort of withdrawn from life. At a math training session with China, the young man meets a female math prodigy, in parallel his tutor and mother strike up a friendship, and in the end things are looking better for everyone.
