Stephen Hawking (Eddie Redmayne) and Jane Wilde (Felicity Jones) achieve more than they could ever have dreamed in 'The Theory of Everything'.

Stephen Hawking and Jane Wilde fell deeply in love while students at Cambridge. A healthy, active young man, Hawking receives an earth-shattering diagnosis at 21 years of age. With Jane fighting tirelessly by his side, Stephen embarks on his most ambitious scientific work, studying the very thing he now has precious little of - time. Together, they defy impossible odds, breaking new ground in medicine and science, and achieve more than they could ever have dreamed.

The Theory of Everything is a British biographical romantic drama directed by James Marsh and written by Anthony McCarten. The film was inspired by the memoir, Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen by Jane Wilde Hawking, which deals with her relationship with her ex-husband theoretical physicist, Stephen Hawking, his diagnosis of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and his success in physics.

This is the sixth feature film directed by Marsh. Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables) and Felicity Jones (The Amazing Spider-Man 2) star with Charlie Cox, Academy Award nominee Emily Watson, Simon McBurney, and David Thewlis (Harry Potter)

featured in supporting roles.
