What an inspiring film !... and what an outstanding performance, especially on the part of the actor who played Stephen Hawking's role, Eddie Redmayne.

Based on Travelling to infinity: my life with Stephen written by the well known physicist's first wife Jane The theory of everything is not only a biographical film that takes us back into his astrophysics student times through to his first worldwide recognition but also a defiance against all odds in which love has played a major role.
Despite some less appraising critics it is not surprising it has received several awards and nominations since its release in late 2014 though.
