Our next film is THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING (2014). Nominated for five Oscars, including Best Picture, directed by James Marsh and adapted by Anthony McCarten from the memoir 'Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen' by Jane Wilde Hawking, which deals with her relationship with theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking, his diagnosis of motor neuron disease (ALS), and his success in physics. Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones play the Hawkings (both are nominated).
Rotten Tomatoes reports that 72% of critics gave the film a positive review. The site's consensus states: "Part biopic, part love story, 'The Theory of Everything' rises on James Marsh's polished direction and the strength of its two leads.”
Attendees will select the next film in the series, which runs every two weeks on Wednesdays at 7pm at TCC.
