The Theory of Everything (2014)
May 2018 -- Treasures from the MI Film Collection

Special guest: Jeffrey Anderson, film critic, The Examiner

Directed by James Marsh | Eddie Redmayne, Felicity Jones

Eddie Redmayne won an Oscar for his depiction of the late cosmologist Stephen Hawking in this film that focuses less on his work in the field of physics than on his marriage to teacher and author Jane Hawking and his struggle with the motor neuron disease diagnosed when he was only twenty-one. Both Redmayne and Jones succeed in conveying the personalities and passions of two unconventional people who succeed in building an enduring relationship in spite of overwhelming odds.
