Two wonderful films on BlueRay that are perfect for anyone's DVD library! I had viewed both in theatre format; they don't lose anything on DVD! That (with typical Hollywood modifications and omissions) they are actual biographies makes the films even more enjoyable. I have read that Russell Crowe is not a very pleasant man in real life, but his acting deserves recognition and admiration! These two films are among his very best performances.

Classic movie with a decent pack-in.
One of my favorite movies of all time. The trailer and adverts for this film make it about espionage and conspiracy vs. schizophrenia and delusions of grandeur, but the heart of the movie is in the relationship between John Nash and his wife.
Oh, and this package comes with both movies in their entirety (A Beautiful Mind and Cinderella Man) at about the same price as either by themselves. Maybe the publisher took some of John Nash's economic advice ;)
I'm not as big a fan of Cinderella Man as I am A Beautiful Mind, but if you're looking to buy either, might as well buy the package.

Two exceptional Russell Crowe vehicles from a decade or so ago, showcasing his amazing talent.
By Not My Real Name
Two superb earlier Russell Crowe films really showcasing the Australian actors incredible and versatile talents. Cinderella Man, a period true story story of a down-and-out boxer, is a hidden gem, didn't win all the acclaim and money of A Beautiful Mind, but is an excellent movie, with Paul Giamatti in a great supporting role. "Mind" is of course the award-winning biopic of John Nash, the brilliant, Nobel winning mathematician who fought paranoid schizophrenia all his life. Compelling film. What a great combination of two exceptional films! At this price, it is a no-brainer. Buy it!
