Synopsis: The Theory of Everything is the extraordinary and uplifting story of one of the world’s greatest living minds, the renowned astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, and of two people defying the steepest of odds through love.



Director James Marsh (Man on Wire) brings this sensitive portrayal of a relationship to the screen with two stunning performances – Eddie Redmayne as Stephen Hawking and a luminous performance from Felicity Jones as Jane Hawking, on whose book Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen the screenplay by Anthony McCarten is based.

Clearly one of the films of the year, it is heartrending, uplifting and very beautiful. The supporting ensemble of actors comprise a breath-taking array of talent with excellent contributions from David Thewlis, Maxine Peake, Emily Watson and Charlie Cox.

Eddie Redmayne’s mentally and physically challenging role depicting Hawking’s brilliance and progressive motor neuron disease is a wonder to behold and Felicity Jones complements this beautiful love story which demonstrates that time and love have no boundaries and as Hawking himself says, “Where there is life there is hope.”
