“The Theory of Everything,” an upcoming drama directed by acclaimed documentarian James Marsh (“Project Nim”), stars Eddie Redmayne as Stephen Hawking during his formative years. The poster for the film, which also features Felicity Jones, who plays Hawing’s first wife Jane, is a look at the obstacles the couple faced.
The film explores the burgeoning relationship between the two, Hawking’s early career and his diagnosis with ALS. In addition to Redmayne and Jones, “The Theory of Everything” also stars Emily Watson and David Thewlis.
“The Theory of Everything” will screen at the Toronto International Film Festival next month. It will later be released theatrically on November 7.
