THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING


By D.E.Levine

Amazing performances make this film an interesting and amazing story instead of what could have been a dull movie about about a scientist challenged by a terrible disease.

Few people having heard of physicist Stephan Harking.  Stricken by ALS when he was only in 21 and given only two years to live, Hawking continued his education and research, married and fathered children and is the oldest living survivor of the disease.

We see Eddie Redmayne transform remarkably in front of our eyes from a healthy, athletic young man to a physically ill, disabled and continually deteriorating individual.  Emotionally supported and physically helped by his wife Jane (Felicity Jones), who chose to marry him despite the diagnosis, we see how he approached both his academic and home lives, achieving greatness in each.

This story comes to the public 50 years after Stephen Hawking was given his original diagnosis and he is still working, laughing, and recently paid to be a participant in the first Virgin Atlantic space flight.
