Director James Marsh’s The Theory Of Everything is a beautiful love story in itself. The fact it’s based on the life of the great physicist Stephen Hawking and his wife Jane is a bonus. And, topping that is the fact there are two outstanding, award-worthy performances by Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones in the main roles.
Screenwriter Anthony McCarten’s adaptation of Jane Hawking’s account of her and Stephen’s relationship is tender, revealing and fascinating. The story flows without flaws, aided by the superb editing of Jinx Godfrey.
The Theory Of Everything is well worth your attention and should appeal to those who or not frequent filmgoers. Hopefully, it will get them into theaters more often.
I give The Theory Of Everything a 4+ out of 5.
