UK, 2014, 123 mins, Dir. James Marsh
Featuring an Oscar, Bafta and Golden Globe winning performance from Eddie Redmayne as astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, one of the world’s greatest living minds. After falling in love with fellow Cambridge student Jane Wilde, Hawking is diagnosed with motor neurone disease at just 21 years old. Despite this earth-shattering news, Hawking, supported tirelessly by Jane, embarks on his most ambitious scientific work A Brief History of Time. Directed by Man on Wires James Marsh, this biopic presents an affective story of love, science, life and determination in the face of tragedy.
It manages that rare thing in any movie, least of all a well-upholstered biopic, and that is a realistic relationship, with grace notes, and a bedrock of respect and affection
A universal story, extracted from a unique one.
