Here’s the first official trailer for The Theory Of Everything and judging this footage alone I would say actor Eddie Redmayne is on course for an Oscar nod.
The film, directed by James Marsh, (Man On Wire), rattles along like so:
The extraordinary story of one of the world’s greatest living minds, the renowned astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, who falls deeply in love with fellow Cambridge student Jane Wilde. Once a healthy, active young man, Hawking received an earth-shattering diagnosis at 21 years of age. With Jane fighting tirelessly by his side, Stephen embarks on his most ambitious scientific work, studying the very thing he now has precious little of – time. Together, they defy impossible odds, breaking new ground in medicine and science, and achieving more than they could ever have dreamed.
The film is based on the memoir Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen, by Jane Hawking, and If you’re planning on seeing this movie make sure you sit next to an open window, as things could get a little smokey.
