The film is the story of Stephen Hawking and his relationship with fellow student Jane Wide, his diagnosis with motor neuron disease, and his astonishing contributions to science.
Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones take the leads, with support from David Thewlis, Charlie Cox, Harry Lloyd, and Emily Watson.
The Theory of Everything is out in Ireland on January 1st.
Starring Eddie Redmayne (Les Misérables) and Felicity Jones (The Amazing Spider-Man 2), this is 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 is directed by Academy Award winner James Marsh (Man on Wire).
