  • This biographical romantic drama film by director James Marsh managed to squeak out a small

  • profit after premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival in September of 2014. The $15-million

  • dollar story chronicles the turbulent adult life of world-renown physicist Stephen Hawking

  • alongside his wife. The 123-minute film is adapted from Jane Hawking's memoir, "Travelling

  • to Infinity: My Life with Stephen" - and indeed, focuses more on their relationship as a couple,

  • and less on his groundbreaking work in astrophysics. Eddie Redmayne provides a showstopping performance

  • as the eager Cambridge student who is diagnosed with motor neuron disease... which eventually

  • robs him of his ability to speak, eat and walk. The range of emotions exhibited by Redmayne

  • is incredible and honest; especially during the later half when he emotes with his entire

  • body, rather than his voice. He was so convincing in fact, that his real-life counterpart reportedly

  • admitted to thinking he was watching himself at certain points. It's more than just a spot-on

  • impersonation though... Redmayne imbues the role with real heart... bringing the audience

  • along for an emotional experience. Felicity Jones is equally remarkable as the steadfast

  • and patient wife... who endures more pain and hardship than anyone could have asked.

  • She is cautioned early by a concern family member who says, "This will not be a fight...

  • this is going to be a very heavy defeat." As with any biopic, the narrative sort of

  • meanders from one disconnected milestone to the next, with numerous supporting players

  • popping in and out as required. This is really Eddie and Felicity's movie though; their passion

  • and chemistry is the undeniable glue that holds this otherwise predictable story together.

  • An early scene where Redmayne compares a brightly lit dance floor to the ultraviolet hues of

  • the cosmos is effective at showcasing their intelligent, yet playful dynamic. When the

  • disease finally does take hold, and that familiar computerized voice is heard, it is actually

  • Hawking himself - that provided the sound. As this is a biographical period drama based

  • on true-events, released theatrically after Labor Day, it's hard not to see "The Theory

  • Of Everything" as anything *but* an Oscar-bait picture... and invariably, I suspect Redmayne

  • will receive many nods for his memorable turn here. As much as Hollywood's award-hungry

  • attitudes frustrate me, it's important not to hold that against the picture itself. Marsh's

  • cinematic style punctuates conventional scenes with somewhat ethereal moments that contain

  • a sort of dreamlike quality about them. All whilehannhannsson's uplifting piano

  • and string-heavy score swells in the background. The PG-13 rated film doesn't really make any

  • mistakes, but it never does anything to set itself apart from any other bio-pic. "The

  • Theory Of Everything" may be familiar and depressing, but it's also an inspiring romance

  • about an influential figure. Here's what you had to say in the YouTube comments.

  • You praised the acting, but were critical of the pacing, scoring this a GREAT. Brilliant

  • performances here, but they're hampered by a rather unoriginal package, I thought it

  • was COOL.
