The Theory of Everything is likely to be a big winner during awards season this year. Eddie Redmayne is all but guaranteed a nomination in the Actor category – and even without seeing all of the other performances, I can easily say that he’s going to be a tough one to beat. Absolutely flawless, heart-wrenching performance as Stephen Hawking.

And then there’s the amazing Felicity Jones is remarkable and refreshing and captivating as Stephen’s wife Jane. She has to be rewarded with a nomination as well.

This is the story of the two of them. This couple, who found love and who fought for love and life together despite the struggles and obstacles put in their way.

It’s amazing that this is a true story, and that Stephen Hawking has contributed so much to science, and to the world. And now we can see that Jane Hawking as made an equal contribution to the world in keeping this man alive when his life expectancy was so short.

Exceptional film.
