John Nash and wife Alicia Nash die in Taxi crash

Have you seen the movie 'A beautiful mind' ?

It is a biopic about a mathematician and Economics Nobel Prize laureate John Nash. A very touching story of his struggle with paranoid schizophrenia.The narrative of the film differs considerably from the events of Nash's life, as filmmakers said they made choices for the sense of the story. The film has been criticized for this aspect, but the filmmakers said they never intended a literal representation of his life.

John Nash said the film inaccurately credited newer antipsychotic drugs to his recovery. Director Ron Howard said it was done so not to encourage schizophrenics to stop taking their medications like Nash.

But all said and done, it is a great movie and has an IMDb score of 8.2/10 right now.

Another John Nash Trivia :
