True they did not put everything about Nash into the movie but of the stuff
they did put in I think they got the spirit if not the letter of it correct.

Unfair. It showed several violent outbursts and his wife did not abandon
him even if they were divorced, and they remarried.

>And where was the science?

I think you ask too much. Put it this way, would you invest your own hard
earned money into a mainstream Hollywood movie where a major plot point
involved nonlinear parameter estimation?
