Gwyneth Paltrow and her Shakespeare in Love director John Madden's London run of David Auburn's play Proof was such a hit the pair decided to make a movie version, roping in another couple of big stars: Anthony Hopkins and Jake Gyllenhaal.

Gwynie plays tormented maths student Catherine who is struggling to come to terms with the death of her schizophrenic maths professor father (Anthony Hopkins). She's also trying to get to grips with her depression and is concerned that she's also mentally ill. Things get even more complicated when her bossy sister (Hope Davis) turns up to help arrange the funeral and one of her dad's former pupils (Gyllenhaal) starts sniffing around for undiscovered maths proofs that her father may have written.

Madden's film is more captivating than his theatre version that at times was tonally flat and not very dynamic. Like the play, this is really emotional stuff, very thought provoking and sweetly romantic.
