|A man with a PhD in mathematics and a master's degree in psychology kidnaps a woman he has determined mathematically and scientifically to be an ideal match for him, with the intention of forcing her to love him. As Adams writes in his summary of the film, the question is "are science and mathematical laws powerful enough to manufacture a relationship?"
The film was shown at the Fantasia festival in Montreal and received some positive reviews, but I have only seen the brief trailer and so cannot say whether math plays any greater role in the film.
