Although he’s more well known for his pair of critically celebrated documentaries (“Man on Wire” and “Project Nim”), James Marsh has done his fair share of traditional fictional films, and his latest such effort, the Stephen Hawking biopic “The Theory Of Everything,” is set for release next month. To turn up the heat and buzz of the Eddie Redmayne-starring film, Focus Features released a new clip and featurette.
First up is a clip featuring Redmayne as Hawking and Felicity Jones as his future wife, Jane Wilde. It’s an emotionally charged scene that takes place after Hawking first receives his ALS diagnosis, and showcases just a sliver of the luminous performances given by the two leads. As we said in our TIFF review, “Redmayne and Jones imbue the screen with an elegance and a sophistication reflecting a timeless tale of love and deep friendship.”
Accompanying this clip is a short featurette that shares interviews with Marsh, Redmayne, and Jones, and illuminates what attracted them to this story of love. “The Theory Of Everything” hits theaters on November 7th. Check out the clip and featurette below.
