In November 2014, a new emotional movie will hit the cinemas.
A trailer plus a review. The talkative reviewer thinks that the filmmakers were cheating when they suggested that Hawking and his wife were saints who transcended the disease. True but the most ambitious movies like that aren't documentaries, anyway.
"A Theory of Everything" is a film about Hawking's life, work, and medical disorder. But it is primarily a movie about his love life, a movie focusing on Jane Hawking, his wife through 1995.
Search Google News for various reviews.
The British "Metro" is among the outlets that believe that the movie is a pure Oscar bait. I haven't seen the full movie so I can't tell.
The movie shouldn't be confused with Hawking (2013). The latter, although it has covered similar events, has a sort of a "boring" documentary format.
