The Theory of Everything

Enrolled as a graduate student at Cambridge, Stephen Hawking (Eddie Redmayne) establishes himself as one of the leading minds of his generation, and begins to win the heart of Jane Wilde (Felicity Jones). After one of his earliest breakthroughs, Hawking is diagnosed with ALS, and he becomes less and less able to control his own body. With Jane fighting tirelessly by his side, Stephen embarks on his most ambitious scientific work, studying the verything 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.
