Film of the Day – The Theory of Everything

The Theory of Everything

This critically acclaimed biopic, complete with an Oscar winning performance from Eddie Redmayne, follows the early life of arguably the greatest scientist alive today: Stephen Hawking.

Based on the memoir by Hawkins’s first wife Jane (played by Felicity Jones), it follows Stephen’s personal life as he starts studying astrophysics at Cambridge, with Jane studying literature. The story continues to explore their relationship as Stephen begins to develop motor neurone disease, and then goes on to see him eventually winning his Nobel Prize and writing A Brief History of Time.

The Theory of Everything is on ITV at 21.00.
