This is not only a good movie, but a wonderful story. The story is full of ups and downs throughout Hawking's life and gives an amazing (fairytale like) insight into his younger years. Eddie Redmayne does a wonderful portrayal of Stephen Hawking which never feels off. The relationships built are abundant and impactful. The actors make every relationship feel real and intimate. The deterioration of Hawking was done very well and gradually (I would hope that was how it really was). The best part is definitely the cinematography and especially the lighting. The lighting creates this amazing mood and atmosphere that the characters flow throw. Overall extremely heartwarming.

Less of a history and more of a background, the love story surrounds the main focus of the two leads yet they don't fail to act their source's accuracy. The Theory of Everything was a masterpiece with having a love story and a psychological issue blending together scene from scene with no bloatedness

This film blew me away. The plot was great. It emphasises mostly on the relationship between Stephen Hawking and Jane Wilde and the difficult times they went through. Breathtaking performances by both Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones. This is overall one of my favourite movies for sure.

An absolutely beautiful movie, and a fitting tribute to the most gifted mind of our age. As a grown man, I 1/2 1/2 1/2(TM)m not ashamed to admit that I cried multiple times throughout. Eddie Redmayne did a stunning job as well. RIP, Dr Hawking You are sorely missed.

Inspiring an appreciation for all the things around us.

James Marsh's The Theory of Everything (2014) is a remarkable biopic on the life of Stephen Hawking. It brings romance to life with vibrant blues and greens next to cinematographer Benoit Delhomme's stunning cinematography. Many images from The Theory of Everything have stuck with me. The positive outlook of Hawking's and his willful perseverance should reinvigorate any audience.

James Marsh's direction is truly gorgeous as the bright vivid colors choices, beautiful costumes, long steady shots, emotional close ups, and creative editing make The Theory of Everything one of my favorite biopics. This movie looks so bright and cleanly shot that it is a testament to great filmmaking for such an inspiring story. Marsh captures the necessary parts of Hawking's incredible life, never afraid to mention the saddest or most harrowing aspects to Professor Hawking's condition. Marsh will hold on Hawking unable to climb stairs or staring at a fire that convey a dismal situation with a respectful understanding.

Additionally, Marsh's subtle use of visual storytelling is impressive as many scenes do not even need conversation, but reveal much of the characters' feelings through their eyes, faces, and body language. Marsh is an excellent director as The Theory of Everything is a wonderful film!

Eddie Redmayne is simply phenomenal as Stephen Hawking. He recreates Hawking's spontaneous youth to his restricted infliction. Redmayne delivered his greatest acting performance as Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything. His accent, slurs, hindered steps, slight eye and mouth movements, and careful eye expressiveness all convene into a thoroughly convincing portrayal of the legendary theoretical physicist. Redmayne adds a likable charisma and serious thoughtfulness to the role. He is truly astonishing as Stephen Hawking.

Likewise, Felicity Jones gives her best performance as an actress to date in The Theory of Everything as Jane Wilde. Her radiant personality matches her peerless wit in order to depict a believable empathy. Jones is enchanting with her lovely appearance and sympathetic face. She effectively utilizes her eyes and face to reveal a deep sadness and unhappiness in her character. She enthralls you with her kindness, patience, selflessness, and sorrow. Jones beguiles the viewer with a passionate plea for the joys of life. Felicity Jones is just dazzling like the stars in The Theory of Everything.

I must mention besides the riveting direction, fascinating edits, captivating performances, and gripping narrative, The Theory of Everything enamored me with its brilliant score. The classical styling from composer Johann Johannsson is astounding. His rising crescendos and sweeping symphony brings delight and magic to The Theory of Everything. His score echoes the methodical scientific sequences alongside the mesmerizing romance passages. I simply adore Johannsson's score to The Theory of Everything!

In all, The Theory of Everything is a beautiful romance film that doubles as a shocking biopic. I believe that this film will give you hope and a better appreciation of your own life.

Si hay algo que me creo es la interpretación de Eddie Redmayne como Stephen e incluso las secundarias como Charlie Cox y Felicity Jones. Resaltando el soundtrack que es a mi gusto hermoso.

like the popular consensus, i think Eddie Redmayne did a fantastic job. eventually you forgot it was him & believed you were watching Stephen Hawking. as far as entertainment goes, i don't really care to watch it again, but it was well done & i'm not mad i watched it once.

Very exceptional biography over his life. There is no reason it should be anything less than a 100% rating on the movie.

Somewhat sentimental but I love love love the academic environs of wood-panelled lecture halls and book-lined offices with leaded glass windows, discussing the big ideas of the day. A good biopic of one of the most famous professors of the day, focusing on his family life and his emotional and physical struggles, more than his intellectual career.

Oscars love movies like "The Theory of Everything." Biography? Check. Illness/condition? Check. The fact that it's someone still alive is just gravy. Unfortunately, as beautifully filmed as it is, the story covers a lot of ground, so it rushes through very key moments of development, which might have been the only option. However, it takes away from the movie and is awfully distracting. That being said, there is not a better acting performance than Eddie Redmayne's portrayal of Dr. Hawking. Everyone else is a distant second, so he should win Best Actor easily.

Much like Hawking himself, this film is quite boring. But Redmayne was phenomenal.

The 2014 filmThe Theory of Everything,based on Jane Hawking's memoirTravelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen, depicts the life of theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking (Eddie Redmayne). The film does not just focus on Hawking's progression ofamyotrophic lateral sclerosis(ALS), a neurodegenerative disease that causes him to be in a wheelchair and speak through a computer system. It shows his relationship with his ex-wife, Jane Hawking (Felicity Jones), and his successes in physics. ALS is fittingly shown as just one part of Hawking's extraordinary life.

The movie has receivedcriticismfor casting Redmayne as Hawking and being "the latest [performance] in a long line of what detractors call 'cripping up': able-bodied actors taking on disabled roles, which some critics find as deplorable as the thankfully outdated practice of white actors pretending to be black". I too would be critical of this casting decision were it not for the special circumstances of this film.

The film is meant to reflect Jane Hawking's memoir, a story that shows Hawking's life before and after his diagnosis and through every stage of his ALS's progression. This situation is not identical to a character who is always seen in a wheelchair being played by a nondisabled actor or a character who is born blind being played by a seeing actor. When the circumstances prevent the role of a disabled character from being filled by a disabled actor, there are certain steps that must be taken to ensure that the experiences of disabled people are as accurately portrayed as possible.The Theory of Everythingdoes a very good job of fulfilling this criteria.

First of all, Redmayne spent over four monthsstudyingHawking's life, watching every video he could find on him and reading books written by him. Redmayne worked with a choreographer to record and analyze every movement from picking up a pen to drinking to walking. To understand and accurately portray how the disease affected Hawking throughout the different stages, Redmayne met with over 30 people affected by ALS and viewed photographs of Hawking throughout his life.

Most importantly, Hawking was consulted during every stage of the movie's production. Redmayne met with him before starting to film, and he visited the set during production. Before the movie was released, Hawking viewed the film and gave his approval. Redmayne's hard work paid off, asHawking called the film"broadly true" and that there were "certain points when he thought he was watching himself". After the screening, "Hawking was so pleased with the movie" that he let the filmmakers use his own, trademarked computerized voice.

In instances when disabled characters cannot be played by disabled actors, it is crucial that people affected by that specific disability are included in the process and that their concerns are listened to. Since everyone's experiences are different, multiple people must be consulted. The experiences of disabled people must not be misrepresented, and the reinforcement of stereotypes must be avoided. The motto of the disability rights movement, "Nothing about us without us", applies to media representations as well.
When portraying disability, care must be taken to ensure accurate representation and people within the disability community must be included in the process.

A warm and touching movie about the famous physicist and philosopher Steven Hawking, featuring powerful performances from both leading actors wherein the force of the movie, actually, relies. Also the music enhances the humanistic appeal of the movie. The film is about bravery, the bravery to live against all odds and the bravery to love and care no matter what.

Absolutely floored by Eddie Redmayne's performance. A beautiful look into the one of a kind life of Stephen Hawking.

Not especially memorable or enjoyable. Stephen Hawking accomplished so much against great odds, but faith in God would have made his story more inspiring to me. I also didn't care for the focus on the unusual love triangles. (First and only viewing - 3/30/2018)
