Rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones star in James Marsh’s The Theory of Everything. It is part biopic and part love story of English physicist and cosmologist Stephen Hawking (Redmayne) and his first wife Jane Wilde Hawking (Jones). It has been criticized for its conventional biopic storytelling method and sanded down dramatic presence but I quite enjoyed the film. The lazy storyline is propped up by excellent performances and I believe Redmayne should earn an Academy Award nomination. Listen to my podcast, above, for the full review.
