With a script by Andrew McCarten -- based on the memoir "Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen" by Jane Hawking, ex-wife of famed physicist Stephen Hawking -- director James Marsh's drama is, for its first hour, an impressive period piece set in 1963 Cambridge University. After that, the story shows the hazards of having to tiptoe decorously around messy domestic complications when all those involved are still very much alive.Click here to read the full reviewDecember 2nd, 2014 · Details
I was pleasantly surprised by "The Theory of Everything." The acting is phenomenal, especially Eddie Redmayne. This is one of the wittiest movies I have seen in a very long time, and it gives a great perspective on everything from physics to religion to parenting to education. The biggest problem I saw with the movie is how their marriage was portrayed. I felt that Jane was painted in the wrong light. While the movie continuously praises Hawking in every aspect of his life, it was not fair to Jane and her experiences. However, despite this issue, "The Theory of Everything" is beautiful and exemplifies Hawking's belief that there is "no boundary to human endeavor."November 21st, 2014 · Details
We have seen many film biographies of great individuals (mostly men). But we have seen almost no films, fact-based or fictional, about great marriages. And we have certainly never seen any films about great marriages that end up with the couple married to other people. But that is what this is.Click here to read the full reviewNovember 14th, 2014 · Details
It's a rare thing for a movie to feel incredibly inspiring and yet deeply depressing all at once.Click here to read the full reviewNovember 13th, 2014 · Details
Every minute is expertly acted and crafted, but the conclusion feels tripe and unsatisfying.Click here to read the full reviewNovember 11th, 2014 · Details
Don’t expect to come out of the theater understanding theoretical physics after seeing The Theory of Everything. In the movie, based on the book Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen, Stephen Hawking’s scientific achievements are merely ancillary events in this story about his relationship with his first wife Jane (Felicity Jones).Click here to read the full review
Capturing the essence of genius is surely one of the toughest assignments a filmmaker or actor can undertake. In The Theory of Everything, Eddie Redmayne does a superb job of bringing astrophysicist Stephen Hawking to life, from his days as a college student through middle age.Click here to read the full review
