Physics seems to be raging all around us, with movies like Gravity and Interstellar getting mainstream. The Theory of Everything (2014) tells us about the life of the most popular theoretical physicist of our times, Stephen Hawking.

The movie opens with Hawking completing his Phd. at Cambridge in the early 60s. This is where he meets Jane, falls in love and marries her. In the meanwhile, he is detected with the motor neuron disease and what follows is the rest of the story of his success and difficulties.

Eddie Redmayne as Hawking brings life to the character and I can't think of a substitute for the part. Redmayne's performance is absolutely breath taking and one would have to watch the movie to believe it. I think it is his best till date and honestly, he deserves an Oscar for this role. Felicity Jones plays Jane, Hawking's darling and first wife. Jones has come a long way from playing teenaged characters to this serious and hard part in a period movie. She deserves an applause for this portrayal and probably an Oscar nomination.

Watch this movie for :
1. Redmayne and Jones perfomrances.
2. Learning about the life Stephen Hawking.
3. Inspiration.

Comment on this post and let me know if you have watched this movie already. All ears!
