The Theory Of Everything
Directed by James Marsh
Released in January 2015
Synopsis : The Theory of Everything is a 2014 biographical romantic drama film which is set at Cambridge University and details the life of the theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking. It was directed by James Marsh and adapted by Anthony McCarten from the memoir Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen by Jane Hawking, which deals with her relationship with her ex-husband, theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking, his diagnosis of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease or motor neurone disease), and his success in physics.
I really loved this movie ! Stephen Hawking is someone whose life has always been nagging my interest.
The casting is impeccable ! Eddie Redmayne is a great actor and he is a perfect Stephen. Full of hopes, his head full of theories everyone greater than the previous one.
Felicity Jones is Jane Hawking, Stephen’s wife. She is a solid into Stephen’s life. His anchor.
She must have suffered a lot, no matter how deep her love for her husband was.
I also got to find out that Remus Lupin (errr, I mean David Thewlis) was also in the movie, a phD cosmologist who becomes friend with his former student.
I have nothing negative to say about that movie, really. I found it perfect, beautiful and very sad. Witnessing how hard life can become, it’s gripping. It has been one of my mottos for the last year and half but I’m gonna say it once more : enjoy every tiny momen of your life.
