Film Review: The Theory of Everything

Last night I finally watch The Theory of Everything so today I thought I'd share my thoughts on the film.

The Theory of Everything was the Oscar winning film that told the story of Stephen Hawking, focusing mostly on his relationship with Jane. The film was a lot different to what I expected. It was not as heavy as I was expecting it to be. It's actually quite light hearted, which was really nice to see, obviously, there are some serious and sad parts of the film as Stephen's condition gets worse, but overall, the film was actually a lot easier to watch than I was expecting. He is a funny character though and it comes through a lot in the film, he makes a lot of great references that I really enjoyed, (for example, without giving too much away, there is a really great Doctor Who reference in the film!).  I do think it's a shame that Stephen and Jane's relationship ended the way it did, after everything they went through together, she was so strong and committed the whole way through. The film was definitely deserving of it's Oscars though, Eddie and Felicity were both so good, they made Stephen and Jane both really loveable characters and so I'm glad I finally watched the film!

Have you seen The Theory of Everything?? What did you think??
