Eddie Redmayne earned a well deserved Oscar for his portrayal of iconic physicist, Stephen Hawking. The movie is a near perfect blend of a love story and biography of an influential person.

Eddie Redmayne's Oscar was truly deserved as he commits himself - body and soul - to the role of Stephen Hawking, from youth to his battle with his motor neuron disease. The transformation is truly astounding and I can't think of another actor who would have been better. You also have to give a lot of credit to Felicity Jones, who held her own playing Jane, the long-time wife (and supporter) of her husband. Great supporting cast (from the likes of David Thewlis, Harry Lloyd and Emily Watson) make this one of the best biopics I have seen.

'Theory of Everything' is a genre exercise that hits all the beats, but does so in a more dignified way. It's made to be purposefully touching, and it succeeds though purity. The film presents these characters, situations, and dialogue with a bit more class than the usual offering. Even if you know, or can tell, where the story will lead, it's still easy to get wrapped up in the moment. The actors give heartbreaking and inspiring performances that feel grounded. There's delicate beauty in the way Hawking's relationships and struggles with his disease are portrayed. I found it moving.
