Film Review: The Theory Of Everything

Welcome to our feature Green Screen, written by our film fanatic Hollie Wicks. Each month we’ll be bringing you the scoop on the best movies to spend your pennies on and which cinema flops to avoid.  All we ask in return is that you do your best to take public transport if you’re going to the cinema. Who knows, you might even meet Forrest Gump at the bus stop…

The Theory of Everything
By Hollie Wicks

The Theory of Everything follows the real life story of Stephen Hawking, portrayed by the somewhat wonderful Eddie Redmayne. The story begins at Cambridge, where Stephen is a student researching Cosmology, and we watch as he falls in love with Jane, played by the sweet Felicity Jones.

But as this love story unfurls, Stephen’s life is peppered with moments of clumsiness and loss of control of his body, foreshadowing the illness that would later define his life. As most people are already aware, Stephen Hawking was just 21-years-old when he was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease and given two years to live.

The Theory of Everything takes you on a journey as Stephen and Jane conquer this terrible illness, through Jane’s stubborn love, facing life’s obstacles along the way. This film is both exquisitely sad and wonderfully uplifting at the same time. A must see for January.

Verdict:
I would give The Theory of Everything a high 7 out of 10 and I  want to congratulate the director James Marsh and the screen play writer Anthony McCarten for making such a beautiful film about such an extraordinary life. Their Golden Globe nominations are very much deserved.

The friend I watched this movie with said  it was the first film she has ever wanted to applaud at the end – now that really says something! And a massive ‘Well done’ to Eddie Redmayne who played Stephen Hawking so convincingly.
