Strongly recommended. Two errors one could make about The Theory Of Everything is to expect either a biopic about cosmologist Stephen Hawking or a clear depiction of his gift to science. James Marsh’s (Man on Wire) movie is more about a theory of happiness. The extraordinary thing revealed in this movie is how joyful Hawking is, despite his affliction. At the end of the movie - - as he flashes back to the beginning - - it’s his children that fill him with creative wonder. We also see his joy in science but it’s more for the doing of physics than for his accomplishments. Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserable) uses only his eyes and mouth to sign this delight . . . although in the pre-ALS sections we see much of Hawking’s mischievous side. Felicity Jones (Like Crazy) matches him, scene for scene, in nuance and power. The nice score by Jóhann Jóhannsson (Foxcatcher) already has a Globe.
