Based on Jane Hawking's best-selling memoir Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen, Anthony McCarten's screen adaptation for the hit movie The Theory of of Everything, starring Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones, is one of the most talked about and award-worthy scripts of the film season.

In the film, we follow Jane and Stephen Hawking from their first meeting to the first signs of Stephen's illness and their wedding, through to the challenges of having to deal with disability and unexpected success - and the strain this puts on the loving couple's relationship.

The result is a feat of cinematic brilliance and screenwriting bravura from the author of several acclaimed novels.
