Toronto International Film Festival Reviews 2014
Here's What You Missed at the Toronto Film Festival
The Theory of Everything
Eddie Redmayne is wonderful as legendary physicist Stephen Hawking, who starts physically deteriorating from motor neuron disease just as his career is taking off. While the focus is more on his marriage to wife Jane (Felicity Jones, who’s lovely) than his scientific breakthroughs, it’s an eye-opening slice of domestic life when one of the partners is physically challenged. Redmayne, who painstakingly portrays Hawking’s limitations, speech, and frustrations, could not be more impressive (or charming) as Hawking goes from promising student to renowned scientist.
