The Theory of Everything: Stephan Hawking Unwinding Trailer

The Theory of Everything: The incredible story of Jane and Stephen Hawking | A Constantly Racing Mind

One of the greatest minds of the 20th and 21st Century, after Albert Einstein, is theoretical physicist, Stephan Hawking. For many, the only image we have of Mr. Hawking is him sitting in his wheelchair. Now we have a look at the man who wrote the book "A Brief History of Time" and came up with the theoretical prediction that black holes emit radiation, which is now known as Hawking radiation. He is internationally renown in both the world of science and pop culture as well.  The film is based on a book that Hawking's first wife Jane. Her memoir, "Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen"  tells of her time with her ex-husband, beginning their time at Cambridge in the 1960's, their courtship, Stephan's initial stages of motor neuron disease (A.L.S.), the couple's marriage, his work as a physicist, and how Jane's love for him  kept the stubborn Hawking going as he became increasingly crippled. In essence, Jane's memoir is about the evolution of the ultimate nerd.

So, here is the synopsis:
Starring Eddie Redmayne (“Les Misérables”) and Felicity Jones (“The Amazing Spider-Man 2”), this is the extraordinary story of one of the world’s greatest living minds, the renowned astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, who falls deeply in love with fellow Cambridge student Jane Wilde. Once a healthy, active young man, Hawking received an earth-shattering diagnosis at 21 years of age. With Jane fighting tirelessly by his side, Stephen embarks on his most ambitious scientific work, studying the very thing he now has precious little of – time. Together, they defy impossible odds, breaking new ground in medicine and science, and achieving more than they could ever have dreamed. The film is based on the memoir "Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen," by Jane Hawking, and is directed by Academy Award winner James Marsh (“Man on Wire”).
In 2004

The trailer, above shows Stephan discussing with Jane that if Einstein's Theory of General Relativity is correct, that theoretically, he can "wind back the clock," and theorize what happened at the beginning of time.  Jane, on the other hand, turns the moment into a cute, romantic moment culminating in a kiss. It also goes on to show Hawking under the tutelage of Dennis Sciama (David Thewlis) to develop the mathematics behind the theory of Black Holes.. Finally, we see as Hawking's disease becomes more pronounced, and he no longer can hide it as he takes a fall on the campus.

"The Theory of Everything" is due out in limited release on November 7, 2014, in the United States. In a way, this film ties in with Christopher Nolan's blockbuster "Interstellar" that opens this weekend as well. While living in California in the early 1970s and as a visiting professor at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), he worked with faculty member Kip Thorne and debated the subject of Black Holes. Kip Thorne collaborated on Christopher Nolan's "Interstellar" providing the mathematical models that Nolan's effects team used to create the singularity images on the screen, making as realistic as possible.
