“Academy Award winner James Marsh (Man On Wire) helms the romantic drama starring Eddie Redmayne (of the blockbuster Les Misérables) as theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking, world-famous as the author of A Brief History Of Time, opposite Gotham Independent Film Award winner Felicity Jones (Like Crazy). The movie explores the excitement of the 1960s for Stephen as he studies at Cambridge University. At the dawn of a brilliant life’s work, he falls passionately in love with arts student Jane Wilde. Their relationship leads him through personal and scientific challenges and breakthroughs, and as his world opens up he opens up the entire world to new ways of seeing. Jane’s memoir Travelling To Infinity: My Life With Stephen inspired the new film.”
