‘Theory Of Everything’ reveals Stephen Hawking’s Personal Life

Everyone with interest in science knows about astrophysicist Stephen Hawking. Hawking is a prominent personality in his field and very well known for his work on the origin of time and space, among other things.

The people do not know much about his personality, but they will after watching the 'Theory of Everything'. It is a latest movie based on the life of Hawking and his ex-wife Jane Hawking. The movie is based on the memoir titled 'Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen', written by Jane Hawking.

The movie beautifully shows how Jane Hawking has supported her husband despite knowing the fact that he was diagnosed with a motor neuron disease at the age of 21. Rather than a documentary, the movie is a pure love story showing the ups and downs that the couple has faced and their complicated marriage.

Though it is a love story, director James Marsh has not forgotten to add punch of science. Some greatest discoveries of Stephen Hawking have been shown in the movie. However, it cannot be ignored that the main focus of the movie is the scientist's personal life.

The film will be definitely loved by people who have closely kept a track of the scientist's work. In fact, people who have not would love it, as they will come to know as to how the scientists has lived his life despite suffering from such a chronic disease and how he found his first love.

Stephen Hawking was approached after the script was written. Therefore, he himself has very little to do with the movie. But it is being said that Hawking visited the studio when it was the second day of the shooting.

From the movie, people will realize how determined Hawking was to continue his life and scientific studies despite his disease. The motivation to continue came from the fact that he loved his life.
