The Theory of Everything is a biopic depicting the early life of quantum physicist Stephen Hawking. While it deals with his scientific genius and his diagnosis with a devastating neuromuscular disease, its focus is on Stephen's relationship with Jane, the woman who would become his wife. The film is a mingled tale of romance and triumph over adversity. The movie, which was written by Anthony McCarten, was based on the book by Jane Hawking describing her life with Stephen. James Marsh directed the movie, which has music composed by Johann Johannson and cinematography by Benoit Delhomme. English actors Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones play the leading roles of Stephen and Jane Hawking. Both have received accolades for their work in the film, especially Redmayne, as he had to learn how to behave as though he had lost most of his motor functions. The Theory of Everything runs 123 minutes and is rated PG-13 for suggestive elements.
