Fermat's Room

Movies, Thriller

***** (Five stars)
A Spanish whodunit story that will keep you on the edge of your seat and wanting more, Fermat’s Room is a bit like the game of Clue; there are questions of who did it and with which object, although the room is a given, and its walls are literally closing in on four brilliant mathematicians. Don't trouble yourself trying to solve the complicated “grand enigma” at the story's core; leave that to the superhot math jocks, Galois and Oliva. You'll be so sucked into the plot that you’ll forget you're reading subtitles in this top-notch murder mystery, which throws in some humor for good measure.—Kristen Fricione, HR assistant
