Coming out of Telluride and Toronto with a decent, if not rapturous buzz, “The Theory Of Everything” is still not one to discount this awards season. And a new trailer has arrived to further make the case.
With performances by both Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones garnering Oscar talk, the film tells the true story of astrophysicist Stephen Hawking and the relationship with fellow Cambridge student Jane Wilde. It was a meeting of the mind and heart between the pair, all while Hawking’s diagnosis of motor neuron disease hangs over them. Here’s the official synopsis:
Starring Eddie Redmayne (“Les Misérables”) and Felicity Jones (“The Amazing Spider-Man 2”), this is the extraordinary story of one of the world’s greatest living minds, the renowned astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, who falls deeply in love with fellow Cambridge student Jane Wilde. Once a healthy, active young man, Hawking received an earth-shattering diagnosis at 21 years of age. With Jane fighting tirelessly by his side, Stephen embarks on his most ambitious scientific work, studying the very thing he now has precious little of – time. Together, they defy impossible odds, breaking new ground in medicine and science, and achieving more than they could ever have dreamed. The film is based on the memoir Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen, by Jane Hawking, and is directed by Academy Award winner James Marsh (“Man on Wire”).
“The Theory Of Everything” opens on November 7th.
