A fictitious love story loosely inspired by the lives of Danish artists Lili Elbe and Gerda Wegener. Lili and Gerda's marriage and work evolve as they navigate Lili's groundbreaking journey as a transgender pioneer.
A young man who survives a disaster at sea is hurtled into an epic journey of adventure and discovery. While cast away, he forms an unexpected connection with another survivor: a fearsome Bengal tiger.
The Theory of Everything is the story of the most brilliant and celebrated physicist of our time, Stephen Hawking, and Jane Wilde the arts student he fell in love with whilst studying at Cambridge in the 1960s. Little was expected from Stephen Hawking, a bright but shiftless student of cosmology, given just two years to live following the diagnosis of a fatal illness at 21 years of age. He became galvanized, however, by the love of fellow Cambridge student, Jane Wilde, and he went on to be called the successor to Einstein, as well as a husband and father to their three children. Over the course of their marriage as Stephen's body collapsed and his academic renown soared, fault lines were exposed that tested the lineaments of their relationship and dramatically altered the course of both of their lives.Written by
The math problem, "Calculate the stress tensor for source free electromagnetic and show that it is conserved using Maxwell's equations," is the fourth math problem from the set passed out by Professor Sciama that Hawking digs out on his room/dorm's desk at Cambridge University. See more »
When Steven Hawking's life is played backwards and rewinds later in the movie, the sequence of his collapse and tracheotomy are the wrong way around. It should show him having the operation, then winding back to his collapse in the Wagner concert, but the incidents are in the wrong reverse order. See more »

So I said, "I have long been looking for a model of the universe." I finally found her."
I bet you did.

One might think that this movie would be about esoteric theories that are beyond the capacity for most people.
You would be so wrong!
This was probably the best love story I have ever seen. I was on the edge of my seat watching Jane Hawking (Felicity Jones) as she did more and more amazing acts of love for Stephan Hawking (Eddie Redmayne). I cannot imagine anyone that fits the definition of love more than she did.
Redmayne was brilliant as Hawking.
Anthony McCarten took Jane Hawing's book and wrote a screenplay that was a thrill to watch.
