The Theory of Everything

I’m on a roll here folks. Last week, Paula, Mary and I went to see “The Theory of Everything” starring Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones. This is the opposite of date night. This is the night where we take my mother-in-law to the movies. This is the true story of Dr Stephen Hawking and his wife Jane Wilde discover that Dr Hawking has the incurable disease ALS.

everythingThe movie starts before the onset of the disease and through the time when he discovers the disease. The movie gives us a brief glimpse of Stephen Hawking’s life.

Once again the set direction is outstanding. You feel that you have been transported back in time to the 50’s and 60’s. Eddie Redmayne nails his characterization of Hawking. I kept thinking, How’d he do that. One actually believes that you are watching Hawking. Amazing.

Theory of Everything has been nominated for 5 Oscars including Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Actress.

We’re trying to make it through all of the Oscar nominated films but I don’t think that we will make it. Sigh.

Once again, great film, Go see it.
