Hier die traurige und frustrierende Ironie von The Theory Of Everything, des Biopics über Stephen Hawking: Hawking, berühmt für die ungewöhnlichen, risikofreudigen Wege, die seine Forschung bestimmten, bekommt den denkbar konventionellsten Film, der jedem Risiko aus dem Weg geht. Regisseur James Marsh kratzt allenfalls an der Oberfläche des Autoren von A Brief History of Time, ohne auch nur einen Versuch zu unternehmen, tiefer zu graben. Ein Film, der einfach nur alle Erwartungen erfüllt und am Ende - ganz gut funktioniert. Eddie Redmayne spielt Hawking nicht nur als aussergewöhnlichen Wissenschaftler, sondern auch als leidenschaftlichen Mann. Nie hat der Anfang Dreissigjährige so überzeugend eine so komplexe Figur gespielt - ich wünschte nur, der Film hätte mehr hergegeben …

Jane : What are you ?
Stephen : I’m a cosmologist
Jane : What’s that ?
Stephen : It’s a kind of religion for intelligent atheists.
I must admit that I've seen this film a few weeks ago. Probably the fact that Eddie Redmayne was nominated for an Oscar, prompted me to see if he was a worthy contender for the coveted golden statuette. And the only thing I can say is that he totally deserved to win with his magnificent performance. I love to watch a biographical movie now and then. The only drawback is that I'm always a little bit disappointed about the subject covered in such a biopic and that the emphasis lies on something I wasn't looking for.

Theory of Everything is a beautiful well crafted film that will give you hope and help you to see that anything is possible no matter what road blocks are put in front of you ln life. I was totally mesmerized by Eddie Redmayne's performance as Stephen Hawking. His transformation was stunning to say the least. From his voice and physical deterioration was nothing short of brilliant. He is most deserving of his Academy Award nomination and I for one wouldn't be upset if he won. Tough year with Keaton's career achievement to contend with. Felicity Jones stands out as well as Stephen's "Rock" through most of his ordeal. She stays by his side for as long as humanely possible and her true love shows through in every scene. All in all this is a very well done moving film that doesn't …

Stephen Hawking: "There should be no boundaries to human endeavor. However bad life may seem, while there is".
The movie tells the origins of the great genius today Stephen Hawking. He 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.
I have seen many actors in the past taking on roles where their play people based on real life with have a serious disease or a disability which …
