THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING: A brilliant tour de force and a sure-fire Oscar nomination for Eddie Redmayne portraying the real-life physicist Stephen Hawking's indestructable life. Equally good is Felicity Jones in the role of his supporting wife. Stricken with ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease) in the prime of his life, the film chronicles Hawkins remarkable career that gave rise to his quote "Where there is life, there is hope." And, indeed, that is the message of the film in which our two leads give us a master class in superb acting. There will be no "spoiler" here, but the ending is pure poetry. Go see it. I beg you.
