Movie: The Theory of Everything

Eddie Redmayne's amazing physical transformation as Prof. Stephen Hawking is reason enough to see this biographic movie. Redmayne manages to convey both the darkness of suffering a potentially terminal illness as well as the will and optimism involved in becoming, perhaps the most famous scientist of our time. It is a snapshot of almost 50 years, so it doesn't necessarily always explain how ground breaking his work is; but the movie is not so much about his work but about his life. It's an amazing biopic that thoroughly deserves the plaudits it has received.
