Proof is a compassionate and brilliant exploration of a family gifted with genius and fraught with mental illness. The enigmatic Catherine has spent years taking care of her father who slipped from mathematical genius to insanity, after years of notoriety for his work. Upon his death, Catherine and her sister must sort out how to move forward. Her sister offers a pragmatic solution, believing Catherine incapable of taking care of herself and feeding Catherine’s fear that she may have inherited her father’s propensity toward mental degeneration. A discovery of a mysterious proof in the notebooks scattered about the house by an unlikely suitor complicates their lives even further and challenges everyone’s perception of Catherine, including her own.
