Watched The Theory of Everything this evening. Stunningly good film. It perfectly captures the phenomenon that is Hawking. Could have been inaccessible (physics) or mawkish (his disability), but it turns out to be a love story. Even with this premise, it could have portrayed Hawking as the grumpy baddy, but it refuses to take sides. But of course, what really makes the film is Eddie Redmayne's amazing performance. He is Hawking. And if he doesn't get the Oscar next weekend for it, then there's no justice in this particular galaxy.
