Can anybody recommend a movie about physicists or physics students? It seems that math people seem to have gotten most of the limelight in the last few years. However, there's a film coming out in April which I'm curious about: "Dark Matter" Dana Scully had a physics degree, but that barely ever came up on "The X-Files". In "Spiderman" Peter Parker was studying physics.... But in these cases physics mostly serves as a cheap way to give a character credibility without actually being important to the character. I'm particularly interested to hear about films where ideas from physics work as metaphors for some other aspect of the story. I can only think of a couple books which accomplish this in a very compelling way - "The Genius and the Goddess" (Aldous Huxley), "Music In A Foreign Language" (Andrew Crumey) and "The Crying of Lot 49" (Thomas Pynchon).
