“Theory of Everything:” Trailer for Movie about Stephen Hawking Now Available

Who says science and love (and science and the arts) don’t go together? A new movie set to premiere in November 2014 will feature the life story of physicist Stephen Hawking and focuses on his relationship with Jane Wilde, the art student he fell in love with while studying at Cambridge in the 1960s. “The Theory of Everything” also depicts Hawking’s genuius amid the diagnosis of a fatal illness at age 21 and how he has survived. From the movie blurb:

Little was expected from Stephen Hawking, a bright but shiftless student of cosmology, given just two years to live following the diagnosis of a fatal illness at 21 years of age. He became galvanized, however, by the love of fellow Cambridge student, Jane Wilde, and he went on to be called the successor to Einstein, as well as a husband and father to their three children. Over the course of their marriage as Stephen’s body collapsed and his academic renown soared, fault lines were exposed that tested the lineaments of their relationship and dramatically altered the course of both of their lives.

The movie stars Eddie Redmayne as Hawking and Felicity Jones as Jane, and is from Focus Films. See the full cast and info at IMBd.

    The life of Stephen Hawkings is a great inspiration. The triumph of hope over despair. His legacy helps me understand my existence in the context of eternity.

    We are children of Eternity, passing through one more existence. The human existence is an opportunity to break the cycle. We must do so deliberately. May we use every moment of this existence to discover our true purpose and divine destiny.
