Steven: I'm a cosmologist.
Yer one: What's that?
Steven: It's like religion for atheists.

:eh :

Other than that opening it wasn't bad.

David Cox / The Guardian / February Six Twenty Fifteen : Play It Safe Sam

Theory Of Everything in which Stephen Hawkings struggles with dread disease and cosmological mystery prove less compelling than his love life. The film wakes up when Hawking manages to dump his devoted first wife Jane for his comely nurse. The emotional realities of the situation cry out for exhaustive scrutiny but instead the film withdraws to the sideline

In a 1999 memoir Jane said flames of vituperation hatred desire for revenge leapt out at me from all side scorching me to the quick. Yet in the film no one gets upset all remain friends and the scientists image remains considerably unsullied. One critic dismissed it as a shallow tame adaption of Jane Hawkings memoir diluted to the point of tedium
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________

I have not read Jane Hawkings memoirs but I have read Stephen Hawking : His Life And Work by Kitty Ferguson and the break up of the marriage is not glossed over and nor could it have been any way. So this obvious attempt at airbrushing would seem to be completely unnecessary even if arguably artistically justifiable

On Newsnight an interesting question was asked which was why is it alright for abled actors to play disabled parts but not alright for white actors to play black parts ? I wish I knew what was said but I missed it. Although it did get me thinking as
to why some roles are open to anyone but others are not

Jane Hawkings was interviewed on the radio a while ago and was very complimentary about the actors, who she said portrayed their marriage movingly realistically.
