LOVE conquers all according to the saying and nowhere is that more true in this true portrayal of Stephen Hawking’s life.
The world-renowned physicist is a name revered by millions across the globe but the lesser-known tale of his marriage is beautifully acted in this compelling drama.
Hawking (Eddie Redmayne) meets literature student Jane Wilde (Felicity Jones) when the pair are studying at the University of Cambridge in 1963.
There is a mutual attraction, both physically and intellectually, but shortly after they meet, Hawking is diagnosed with motor neurone disease and told he is unlikely to live more than two more years.
The devastating news threatens to derail their romance early on but the pair vow to make it work in this heart-warming tale for the new year.
