Running head: A BEAUTIFUL MIND
A beautiful mind movie
A beautiful mind is a 2001 movie, that was directed by Ron Howard. Ron did a
commendable job in highlighting Schizophrenia, especially among introverts, and individuals of
high status in the society. The film depicts the life of a Character John Nash, who suffers from
Schizophrenia shortly after joining the graduate school at the University of Princeton in 1948.
Schizophrenia is the most chronic and disabling of the major mental illnesses, and it distorts the
thinking ability of an individual, how one acts, expresses emotions, relates with others, and
interprets reality (Feifel et al, 2016). Friends thought John as erratic, odd, and ailing in
fundamental of social aptitudes. John regularly skipped classes, composed numerical recipes on
windows, and burned through most hours befitting his scholarly capacities. John did not interact
with many people; his most interpersonal interactions were his roommate Charles and a few
While the signs of Schizophrenia had emerged early, her work and family life aggravated
the already bad situation. Once John started teaching, he came across a young lady called Alicia;
they fell in love, got married, and had one child. Since he was a genius from a young age, he had
immense scholarly power, which not many could match (Howard, 2002). With his powers, he
was able to translate texts intercepted from the enemy. John was presumably later hired by a
secret government agency to look for hidden messages in magazines and newspapers. Combined
with his family commitment, his new job swallowed him, consuming his entire life.
After getting this new Job, he spent the most time on his own, reading and interpreting
tones of texts from the enemies. As time passed by, John stays more and more within himself
which results in significant problems in his life. But his wife Alicia stands by him to his
redemption to the Nobel prize win. John discovers that his graduate school colleagues, with
whom he had a mutual but distant relationship, are closer allies than he imagined. However, later
in life, he misses Charles' company more than anything despite finding out that spending time
with Charles is not in his best interest.
The events taking place in John’s life surprised those around him, including his family
members. His wife, Alicia suffers all the challenges that John her husband is going through.
Being a strong and caring woman, she stands by her husband and tries to convince him that he
hallucinates and has delusions (Howard, 2002). John is in denial, and at times he gets angry at
her for not having faith in him. The main problem with schizophrenia condition is s that victims
views things as normal brain sees things. John opts to stay away from his wife not like before,
but Alicia does not give up; she supports him to assist him in overcoming the mental disorder.
Rosen gives John antipsychotic drugs, with the hope that they would help improve his
condition and bring him back to a normal life. After trying them for a while, he ceases taking
them resulting in returning of his hallucinations. This puts John's family in danger. His wife asks
him to take care of the baby at some point, and he goes on with his hallucinations and says that
Charles is taking care of the baby. Alicia gets upset and asks him to go back to the health facility,
and she even calls Rosen the medical practitioner, but John runs after her and hurts her (Howard,
2002). While running after Alicia, Parcher tells John to finish Alicia meaning kill her. John also
sees Marcee ones more and runs towards Alicia claiming that Marcee is not real since she never
gets old. From that incident, John wakes up from his hallucinating thoughts and starts thinking
straight about his cond...
