Most of us know or at least have heard about Stephen Hawking: The astrophysicist that has been revolutionizing the scientific world for more than three decades despite being completely paralyzed and having to speak through a machine. It is no surprise that someone would take his story to the big screen.
The Theory of Everything is a film that has no intention to be much more than a very accurate and romantic representation of Hawking's personal life. A film that chooses to focus on the most intimate and personal circumstances of his life rather than on the scientific or academic part of it.
Some people complain that it was too much of his life and too little of his work, but I personally found it fascinating to get a deeper view of his personal life. A perspective that shows you how love, family and friends have deeply influenced his famous theories and ideas.
Another reason to go watch this movie is the OUTSTANDING performance by Eddie Redmayne. I'd dare to say that he will be the big winner for this years Best Performance at the Oscars.
If you still need more reasons to decide wether or not to watch this movie, here's a trailer that says more than I can:
