The Theory of Everything (2014)

I wanted to watch The Theory of Everything when it came out in theaters, but I never had the opportunity. More recently, I really wanted to watch it after learning that the part of Stephen Hawking was played by Eddie Redmayne - who became known to me through the Fantastic Beast series.

Stephen Hawking (Eddie Redmayne)

In any case, the film excelled both visually and aurally. I also enjoyed the chemistry between the lead roles: Stephen Hawking played by Eddie Redmayne and Jane Hawking played by Felicity Jones.

For the most part, I thoroughly enjoyed this film and would recommend it as to fans of drama films.

Jane Hawking (Felicity Jones)

Netflix determined the movie for me as a 80% match. I decided to give the movie neither a thumbs up nor a thumbs down.

I was writing up my notes for Solo: A Star Wars Story today and made a brief comparison to Rogue One. Subsequently, I went to my post for Rogue One, saw a picture of Jyn Erson (Felicity Jones), and Googled her name. That's when I learned that she was the same actress who played Jane Hawking in The Theory of Everything.

Poor Jane. Jonathon leaves. The two had let each other know they have feelings for each other.
