Paltrow is pretty commanding, even if Madden pushes things toward airlessness by keeping the camera so tight. Full Review

Proof proves undeniably that the intimacy of a stage play can be re-created powerfully on screen. Full Review
David Rooney
But despite less-than-ideal casting of the male roles, and a tendency to soften the Pulitzer Prize-winning work's thorny humor with a more sober tone, director John Madden has woven together an elegant, intelligent drama of a breed increasingly rare in mainstream American movies. Full Review
James Berardinelli
The material is intellectual, but the treatment is not. Proof is a stirring motion picture that challenges our views on a great many things about life, some of which we take for granted. And, by opening up the play, Madden has made it less talky and more cinematic without losing the quintessential elements that made it such a success on stage. Full Review

I wish I could report the arrival of an impressive movie, but this one, for all its ostensibly big ideas about mathematics and wounded minds, struck me as an elaborate pretext for a synthetic love story. Full Review
