Overview

James Marsh's biopic of the celebrated scientist Stephen Hawking, The Theory of Everything, stars Eddie Redmayne as the famous figure. Enrolled as a graduate student at Cambridge, Hawking establishes himself as one of the leading minds of his generation, and begins to win the heart of Jane (Felicity Jones). After one of his earliest breakthroughs, Hawking is diagnosed with ALS, and he becomes less and less able to control his own body. With the loyal Jane at his side, he continues his work. However, as the years progress, Jane starts to feel more like a nurse than a wife, and Hawking begins to have feelings for a woman who is hired to care for him. The Theory of Everything screened at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival.

This was on of the best movies I've seen. Eddie Redmayne was excellent in this role. This young actor was so realistic. I am anxious in watching more movies with Eddie Redmayne.

The Theory of Everything is about Stephen Hawking, one of the greatest minds of our time and his struggle with motor neuron disease. Eddie Redmayne plays the role of Mr. Hawking brilliantly. He expertly transitions from a vigorous young man, to being nearly immobile and he is able to convey emotion despite his inability to move. Felicity Jones' plays Jane Hawking. While Jane Hawking does not change as drastically as Stephen Hawking throughout the course of the movie, she is certainly not the same person by the end of it. Felicity Jones skillfully alters her look and acting throughout the story to convey her character's aging and disillusionment. Through fantastic acting, the movie is able to show just how difficult it can be to lose motor function. In the latter half of the film, Stephen Hawking acquires a new wheel chair equipped with a computer of sorts. The machine allows him to scan the alphabet quickly and pick letters. It also includes text to speech functionality derived from a telephone answering machine. Previously, the professor had great difficulty communicating his thoughts. When diagnosed, he was very concerned about being able to continue his research, so he asked the doctor if his brain would still function. The doctor replied that his thoughts would not change, but "eventually no one will know what they are." This is the ongoing struggle throughout most of the movie. Once Hawking loses any ability to talk, he attempts to use a spelling board. This is shown to be ineffective. However, using the computer in his new wheelchair, Hawking is able to write four words per minute. With this machine, he is even able to write a whole book: the best-seller "A Brief History of Time." The Theory of Everything shows that without human computer interaction, one of the greatest scientists of all time would not have been able to make as great of an impact as he did.
