The Theory of Everything is a true-story film based on the unbelievable life of Stephen Hawking. The film shows the success, struggle, love and heartbreak that Hawking has experienced throughout his life.

Eddie Redmayne has a challenging role in playing Hawking and portrays the protagonist in an incredible way. Hawking’s love of his life, Jane Wilde, is played by Felicity Jones who’s acting is wonderful.

The acting is remarkable which certainly will put the two lead actors, Redmayne and Jones, on a great career path. Eddie Redmayne has already received a Golden Globe for his performance as Hawking.

There are so many things about this film that will make you fall in love with it, from the remarkable acting to the incredible cinematography. Director, James Marsh, has created a masterpiece in this film.

There is a moment between Hawking and Jane on their first official date which has stuck in my head. They have attended a university ball, where Hawking tells Jane he doesn’t dance but later in the night he asks her to dance on a bridge surrounded by fairy lights. The film highlights the traditional romance of the past and shows the true romantic nature of Hawking.

This film will take you on an emotional roller-coaster of a ride. The Theory of Everything will have you crying one moment and smiling with joy the next.

If you’ve not had a chance to see this film yet, I highly recommend catching this one in the cinema before it’s too late!
