The Theory Of Everything premiered at Toronto in September where Deadline’s Pete Hammond called it a “major contender” for the Oscar race, with a performance by Eddie Redmayne as astrophysicist Stephen Hawking that “soars.” This is the second trailer for the Working Title production that Focus releases domestically on November 7. It’s a biopic, but also a love story between Hawking and his wife Jane (Felicity Jones). Their relationship began when both were students at Cambridge, around the same time the brilliant and one-time healthy young man received a devastating diagnosis. I saw footage of this one in Barcelona at Cine Europe in June and there was not a dry eye in the house when the lights came up. Anthony McCarten adapted the screenplay from Jane’s memoir, and James Marsh directs.
