Math Stranger than Fiction

I just saw the movie Stranger than Fiction, and I noticed a strange pattern in the last names of characters: Pascal, Hilbert, Escher, Cayley, Mittag-Leffler. Also, the main character’s favorite word is “integer”. The main character has a penchant for counting, but other than that the movie is as far removed from mathematics as can be imagined, so it’s all very mysterious.
