Edit Cast Cast overview, first billed only: Eddie Redmayne Stephen Hawking Felicity Jones Jane Hawking Tom Prior Robert Hawking - Age 17 Sophie Perry Jane and Stephen do meet at a party, like in the movie.
He was a doctoral student and she was a literature undergraduate. In the movie, Stephen suffers from a dramatic fall that leads him to be admitted to the hospital, tested and diagnosed with ALS.
In reality, Hawking actually suffered two bad falls before his diagnosis: the first in front of Trinity Hall at school, and the other on a train in Germany.
The latter fall knocked out his front teeth, which had to be replaced. He did not visit a doctor after either of the falls.
It was only when he was home over Christmas break that his father insisted he see a doctor because of his slurred speech and shakiness.
According to Eddie Redmayne, the producers actually decided to add that scene in the movie after Redmayne met with the famed physicist.
The producers were worried about having subtitles and all that. Though the film makes it seem as though Jane and Stephen stay in the same spot throughout their marriage, the two actually spent a year in California when Stephen took a one-year professorship position at Cal-Tech in There, students assisted Jane with the care of her husband and children in exchange for a free place to stay in their home.
They continued to solicit student help when they returned to England. Like in the movie, Stephen long refused official outside assistance.
Jane was accused of having an affair with a man named Jonathan Hellyer Jones while she was married to Stephen.
Jonathan stays away from the family, but Stephen visits him, saying that Jane needs him. Stephen is invited to attend an opera performance in Bordeaux , and suggests he attend with his students while Jane and Jonathan take the children camping.
Stephen is taken ill during the performance, and rushed to a hospital. While in the hospital, the doctor informs Jane that he has contracted pneumonia, and that he needs a tracheotomy in order to survive, but which will leave him unable to speak.
She agrees to the surgery. Stephen learns to use a spelling board , and uses it to communicate with Elaine, his new nurse. He receives a computer with a built-in voice synthesiser , and uses it to write a book, A Brief History of Time , which becomes an international best-seller.
Stephen tells Jane that he has been invited to America to accept an award, and will be taking Elaine with him.
Jane faces the realisation that her and Stephen's marriage has not been working, telling him she "did her best". Jane and Stephen agree to divorce.
Stephen goes to the lecture with Elaine, the two having fallen in love, and Jane and Jonathan reunite. At the lecture, Stephen sees a student drop a pen; he imagines getting up to return it, almost crying at the reminder of how his disease has affected him.
He goes on to give an inspiring speech, saying, "There should be no boundaries to human endeavour. We are all different.
However bad life may seem, there is always something you can do, and succeed at. While there's life, there is hope". Stephen invites Jane to meet Queen Elizabeth II with him to receive his Order of the Companions of Honour ; they share a happy day together with their children, with Stephen saying "Look what we made".
An extended closing series comprises select moments from the film; shown in reverse, back to the moment Stephen first saw Jane. A final title sequence brings the lives of the lead characters up to date.
Jane and Jonathan are happily married, and she has completed her PhD. She and Stephen remain close friends. Stephen declines a knighthood from the Queen and continues his research, with no plans to retire in the near future.
In , McCarten read Jane Hawking's memoir Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen , and subsequently began writing a screenplay adaptation of the book, with no guarantees in place.
He met numerous times with Jane at her home to discuss the project. Bruce spent three years with McCarten, further convincing Jane Hawking to agree to a film adaptation of her book, with Bruce stating, "It was a lot of conversation, many glasses of sherry, and many pots of tea".
Marsh had studied archival images to give the film its authenticity, stating, "When we had photographs and documentary footage of Stephen that related to our story, we tried to reproduce them as best we could".
And described portraying Hawking on-screen as a "hefty" challenge, adding that, "The real problem with making a film is of course you don't shoot chronologically.
So it was about having to really try and chart his physical deterioration [so] you can jump into it day-to-day, whilst at the same time keeping this spark and wit and humour that he has".
Redmayne spent six months researching Hawking's life, watching every piece of interview footage he could find of him.
It's not just doing a disability. It's actually charting the course of an illness that erodes the body, and the mind has to project out from that erosion", he said.
He added that Hawking gave him his blessing, and also revealed that, "[Hawking's] response was very positive, so much so that he offered to lend his voice, the real voice that he uses.
The voice you hear in the latter part of the story is in fact Stephen's actual electronic voice as he uses it", he said. By 8 October , principal photography had begun, with the shooting being done at Cambridge University , and at other locations in Cambridgeshire and across the United Kingdom.
The May Ball scene was the last of the outside shoots, with filming in a lecture theatre the following day, and the remaining filming completed in the studio over the final five weeks of production.
The pyrotechnic specialists Titanium Fireworks, who developed the displays for the London Olympic Games , provided three identical firework displays for the Trinity College, Cambridge May Ball scene.
The soundtrack was recorded at Abbey Road Studios. The music that plays over the final scene of Hawking and his family in the garden and the reverse-flashback is "The Arrival of the Birds", composed and played by The Cinematic Orchestra , originally from the soundtrack to the nature documentary The Crimson Wing: Mystery of the Flamingos.
During editing, filmmakers tried to remake Hawking's synthesised voice, but it did not turn out as they wanted. Hawking enjoyed the film enough that he granted them permission to use his own synthesised voice, which is heard in the final film.
The film takes various dramatic liberties with the history it portrays. The Theory of Everything ' s marketing materials will tell you it is based on Jane Hawking's memoir of her marriage, a book published in the UK as Music to Move the Stars , and then re-issued as Travelling to Infinity.
But the screenwriters rearranged the facts to suit certain dramatic conventions. And while that always happens in these based-on-a-true-story films, the scale of the departure in The Theory of Everything is unusually wide.
The film becomes almost dishonest—in a way that feels unfair to both parties, and oddly, particularly Jane Hawking herself. In Slate , L. Anderson wrote that "the Stephen played by Eddie Redmayne is far gentler and more sensitive" than suggested in Travelling to Infinity.
The film alters some of the details surrounding the beginning of Stephen and Jane's relationship, including how they met, as well as the fact that Jane knew about Stephen's disease before they started dating.
For The Guardian , Dean concluded by saying:. The movie presents the demise of their relationship as a beautiful, tear-soaked, mutually respectful conversation.
Of course that didn't actually happen either. Jane's book describes a protracted breakup that comes to a head in a screaming fight on vacation. She also described devastation when Hawking announced by letter he was leaving her for his second wife, Elaine Mason.
He ended up married to Mason for 10 years before that fell apart, and then he and Jane mended fences. Which, as it happens, the movie fudges too.
It tries to present the rapprochement as coming when Hawking was made a Companion of Honour in , but that actually happened before the couple separated.
Physicist Adrian Melott , a former student of Dennis Sciama , Hawking's doctoral supervisor portrayed in the film, strongly criticised the portrayal of Sciama in the film.
On 8 October , Universal Pictures International had acquired the rights to distribute the film internationally. On 10 April , Focus Features acquired the distribution rights to The Theory of Everything in the United States , with the plan of a limited theatrical release.
The film had a limited release in the United States on 7 November ,  expanded in successive weeks to Taiwan, Austria, and Germany,  ahead of a United Kingdom release on 1 January , before being released throughout Europe.
The site's critical consensus reads, "Part biopic, part love story, The Theory of Everything rises on James Marsh's polished direction and the strength of its two leads.
But it borrows from the right sources, this theory.
