Based on the book written by his first wife Jane, the film recounted the time he fell in love with her and struggled with his disease.
One of the greatest scientists out there, Stephen Hawking, is portrayed as a vulnerable and loving man in "The Theory of Everything". First trailer of the Working Title production tells the compelling love story between Hawking and his first wife Jane as well as his achievements in astrophysics.
"Theory of Everything" is based on the 2007 memoir "Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen", written by Jane. From the look of the trailer, the story begins with Stephen meeting Jane as freshmen at Oxford in the 1960s. It also covers the time Stephen found out he was having early signs of Lou Gehrig's Disease, which would leave him bound to the wheelchair for the rest of his life.
Buzzed to be an Oscar contender, the drama is directed by James Marsh. Eddie Redmayne portrays Stephen, starring opposite Felicity Jones as Jane. The film will be screened on the first weekend of Toronto Film Festival, which kicks off September 4, before it heads to the cinemas on November 7.
