Eddie Redmayne won an Oscar for his outstanding portrayal of Setephen Hawking who is one of the world’s greatest living minds. Once a healthy, active young man, Hawking received an earth-shattering diagnosis at 21 years of age. With Jane fighting tirelessly by his side, Stephen embarks on his most ambitious scientific work, studying the very thing he now has precious little of – time. Together, they defy impossible odds, breaking new ground in medicine and science, and achieving more than they could ever have dreamed.
Part biopic, part love story, The Theory of Everything rises on James Marsh’s polished direction and the strength of its two leads. Director James Marsh (Man on Wire) has crafted a most beautiful film filled with intelligence, understatement, pain, joy, love and pathos. It is impossible not to be profoundly moved and inspired by this story.
