This biographical drama based on the life of brilliant physicist Stephen Hawking is amazing, heartbreaking, and beautiful. I too have a "theory of something" — I theorize that when you watch it, you may not cry, but you'll find something in your eye. (Get it? GET IT?! Sorry.)
By the way, the gent playing Hawking is Eddie Redmayne, who I only know as Marius in the recent Les Miserables musical movie. But Redmayne looks like he could actually be Hawking's clone in this movie — it's uncanny. He completely disappears into the role, so even though I know this story has probably been romanticized and dramatized well beyond historical accuracy, The Theory of Everything looks devastatingly good.
It opens on November 7th. Here's the official summary:
Little was expected from Stephen Hawking, a bright but shiftless student of cosmology, given just two years to live following the diagnosis of a fatal illness at 21 years of age. He became galvanized, however, by the love of fellow Cambridge student, Jane Wilde, and he went on to be called the successor to Einstein, as well as a husband and father to their three children. Over the course of their marriage as Stephen's body collapsed and his academic renown soared, fault lines were exposed that tested the lineaments of their relationship and dramatically altered the course of both of their lives.
