The relationship between the famous physicist Stephen Hawking and his wife. — IMDB

This is a beautiful, inspiring story. Gently told with an Oscar-worthy, totally believable, performance from Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables) as Stephen Hawking and well supported by Felicity Jones as his wife, Jane. The movie spans the time from his university days when the initial signs of his motor neurone disease appeared until the present day. Stephen Hawking is a remarkable man with a witty sense of humour and this movie does justice to him and the support he has received from all those around him. Fortunately, for most of us, the movie doesn’t spend too much time on the scientific theories of Hawking (this may disappoint those who are interested in that aspect of the story) but remains focused on the relationship between Hawking and his first wife. Don’t miss this one!
