It's certainly interesting. A theory proposed in 1957 that can
calculate the masses of fundamental particles more accurately than the
standard model, but that never gained acceptance because the math was
too hard, and because the author, a nearly-blind and nearly-deaf man
with no hands raised during the Nazi era, refused to write in English
and did not want anyone other than Germany to develop the hyper-drive.
If a movie had that plot, I'd say it was too unrealistic.
