Proof the movie and the play

Hopkins as the brilliant, mentally ill mathematician-father was fine, though not particularly special in the role.

Two Can Play That Game (2001)

She interrupts the string quartet with an impromptu speech, berating everyone for not being there for her father while he was alive. She returns to University of Chicagoand the film ends with her and Hal meeting up on campus and discussing the proof.

Meanwhile, Neville realizes he can no longer afford the search for Molly and Daisy and decides to suspend the pursuit.

However, the girls are well trained in disguising their tracks. Plot[ edit ] The plot alternates between events immediately following the death of Robert Anthony Hopkinsa brilliant mathematician whose genius was undone by crippling mental illness, and flashbacks revealing the life he shared with his daughter Catherine Gwyneth Paltrow.

At the airport, Catherine has another flashback. Compared to the play, his relationship with Catherine developed a little too quickly in the movie, considering what a loner Catherine had been up to this time.

At the funeral, Catherine expresses her frustration with the many people there. A wake held at the house the night after Proof the movie and the play funeral is attended by many academic mathematicians.

In flashbacks, Robert is shown suddenly invigorated, believing he has seen the beginnings of a new mathematical proof that will prove his triumph over mental illness. He plans to place the girls in a camp where they, along with all half-castes of that age range, both boys and girls, will grow up.

Hal is forced to leave, giving the notebook as intended, when Catherine calls the police. Molly also tells us of her own two daughters; she and they were taken from Jigalong back to Moore river.

Plot[ edit ] Set intwo sisters, year-old Molly and 8-year-old Daisy, and their year-old cousin Gracie live in the Western Australian town of Jigalong. The script was brilliant, and all four actors do a fine job of bringing the story to life. Remember that every ticket you buy is a vote for more of that kind of film being made.

During their time at the camp, Molly notices a rain cloud in the sky and infers that if she, Gracie and Daisy were to escape and go back to Jigalong on foot, the rain will cover their tracks, making them difficult to follow. I too saw Mary Louise Parker in the stage version, and though I slightly preferred her to Gwynneth, the latter nonetheless was fine as the gifted and disturbed Catherine.

Neither Hal nor Claire believe Catherine. However, when Annabelle was 3 years old, she was taken away once more, and Molly never saw her again. She describes his descent into insanity, and that at one time he would borrow piles of books believing that aliens were sending him messages encoded in their Dewey Decimal codes.

He asks Catherine how long she knew about this and why she did not tell him about it. Eventually if they marry, it will be to white people and thus the Aboriginal "blood" will diminish. They will then presumably become labourers and servants to white families, regarded as a "good" situation for them in life.

They are not reunited, however, as Riggs appears and Gracie is recaptured. She tells him that she wrote it. They eventually find the rabbit-proof fence, knowing they can follow it north to Jigalong.

A huge contrast to the unkempt Catherine, Claire is an overly put together, neurotic New Yorker. She decides that she does not need to go with her sister to New York and runs out of the airport. The theater I saw it in was almost empty, so I fear it is not doing too well. Knowing they are powerless to aid her, Molly and Daisy continue their journey.

Robert filled many notebooks with meaningless notes. He returns as Claire and Catherine are leaving, with news that the math department believes the proof to be valid. Molly explains that Gracie has died and she never returned to Jigalong.

The children are referred to by Neville as " half-castes ", because they have one white and one Aboriginal parent. Neville soon figures out their strategy and sends Moodoo and Riggs after them. The information finds its way to an Aboriginal traveller who "helps" the girls.

They evade Moodoo several times, receiving aid from strangers in the harsh Australian country they travel.
