The Theory of Everything

I hesitate to call this new Stephen Hawking biopic a tear-jerker, but I am willing to bet that a few tears will be shed at each viewing despite the movie's overall inspirational theme and intent.

All of us, I imagine, when we think of Stephen Hawking visualize him in his wheel chair, slumped over and dependent upon his speaking-device to communicate with the rest of the world.  His is the story of a remarkable man who possesses one of the finest minds the world has ever seen, a mind trapped inside a near-helpless body.  But equally true is that his wife is an equally remarkable woman.  This is their story.  

The Theory of Everything is a look at what Hawking was like as a young man, how he and his wife found each other, and how much they have accomplished together since then.
