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).
Rotten Tomatoes® Score

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Theory of Everything is a biopic about world-renowned physicist Stephen Hawking (Eddie Redmayne). It's inspiring, but it doesn't shy away from exploring the indignities visited upon Hawking when he's diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease. It also deals with some mature subjects -- including marital discord, infidelity, and near-death experiences -- and has some frank conversations about sexuality (as well as hints of sex between Hawking and his wife and a glimpse of a character looking through Penthouse magazine). Characters discuss the existence of God. It's all engrossing, compelling stuff, but it might be a little mature for tweens and younger.
