Stephen Hawking biopic The Theory Of Everything earned millions at the box office and scored multiple Academy Award nominations after its release in 2014. Furthermore, lead actor Eddie Redmayne even won the Oscar for Best Actor for his portrayal of its main protagonist. But the movie drew fierce criticism from its real-life leading lady, Hawking’s ex-wife, Jane.
The Theory Of Everything tells the story of the life of famed physicist Stephen Hawking. The screenplay is an adaptation of Travelling to Infinity: The True Story Behind the Theory of Everything, a memoir by the scientist’s longtime wife, Jane. It focuses on the couple’s relationship more than Stephen’s phenomenal career beyond his diagnosis of motor neurone disease.
