Excerpt: Il rapporto complesso tra Jane e Stephen è però tratteggiato con grande equilibrio, senza scene madri, ma senza nascondere tradimenti e sgradevolezze, inevitabili nel corso di una lunga vita insieme.
Excerpt: James Marsh nos invita a conocer mejor a una de las figuras más relevantes de la Historia moderna, un icono inamovible que no habría llegado a dónde está sin el apoyo de una mujer verdaderamente increíble. Un biopic repleto de humanidad.
Excerpt: Standardly told, yet executing the complicated parameters and perils of the biopic quite satisfactorily, it may not be as brilliant as its subject, but it’s a moving piece of cinema nonetheless.
Excerpt: Eddie Redmayne’s captivating performance will be compared to Daniel Day Lewis’s achievement in “My Left Foot,” but it is important to note how much life, joy and humor he brings to the role with little more than a cocked eyebrow, a few facial muscles and his eyes
Excerpt: There’s a potentially interesting story in The Theory of Everything, James Marsh’s film about the life of Stephen Hawking (Eddie Redmayne) and his relationship with his first wife Jane (Felicity Jones). Unfortunately, it was already told in 2004 and it starred Benedict Cumberbatch.
Excerpt: There have been many many great performances at the movies, but a significantly smaller number where the actor chosen for the part so perfectly resembles the individual in speech, behavior and physicality that you indeed forget you’re watching an actor. Eddie Redmayne as Stephen Hawking is that kind of a performnace.
Excerpt: For a “prestige picture,” “The Theory of Everything” isn’t much more than a conventional biopic. Far and away, one will take away its two stirringly excellent acting notices as this film’s “everything.”
Excerpt: One of the most talked-about films this year in the run-up to awards season, The Theory of Everything is an adaptation of Jane Hawking’s book about her understandably strained relationship with her first husband, celebrated quantum physicist Professor Stephen Hawking. As everyone should be aware, Hawking came to prominence as much for his breakout theories about black holes and the origins of time, as for the fact he was debilitated by crippling motor neurone disease.
Excerpt: Love, a variable that works its way into Hawking’s work just as much as God himself does, radiates through every scene of the Hawkings’ courtship and marriage. Like peas and potatoes, all good things find a balance. – See more at: http://www.cinemablographer.com/2014/11/like-peas-and-potatoes-theory-of-everything-review.html
Excerpt: Convincingly moving, literate, perceptive and gloriously executed, ‘The Theory Of Everything’ is a resounding character study of academic excellence and professional prominence in the face of both earth-shattering achievement and personalized adversity.
Excerpt: The Theory of Everything é uma das mais belas histórias de esperança, amor e coragem que Hollywood viu nos últimos tempos, quanto mais não seja porque é uma história de amor com falhas humanas e muito realista.
Excerpt: This is a well-made film in almost every regard – Jóhann Jóhannsson’s memorable score and Benoît Delhomme’s evocative cinematography are also noteworthy – but the concept and approach simply turned me off.
Excerpt: It has, however, one extraordinary feature that lifts it above the level of a Lifetime entertainment and gives it wings. Eddie Redmayne is brilliant in his transformation into the gnarled, twisted physical wreck of the Hawking we know, body confined to a wheelchair, voice produced by machine, mind soaring through time and space.
Excerpt: Although it includes an outstanding performance by Eddie Redmayne in the role of the renowned theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking, “The Theory of Everything” is formulaic to a fault.

Excerpt: It’s through Redmayne, more than anything the script allows, that Hawking truly seems like the special subject he should seem; the actor clarifies Hawking’s love for his studies and for Jane through the gushing quickness of his speech as the film begins, and increasingly through his expression and that twinkle in his eyes.
