Powerful, moving drama chronicles the unbreakable bond between Dr. Stephen Hawking (Eddie Redmayne) and Dr. Jane Wilde Hawking (Felicity Jones). Redmayne’s performance is a revelation, developing Stephen not as a diseased man, but as a soulful one. That soulfulness doesn’t one bit go away when Stephen begins to lose his ability to communicate verbally, a tragedy that Redmayne delivers quite impressively. His costar, Jones, adds so much emotion to her role as Stephen’s caring wife, determined to keep him alive at all measures. These are two of the best performances from any screen actor all year, for sure, and I hereby guarantee not only an Oscar nomination but an Oscar win for Redmayne in the Best Actor category. A spectacular movie, no doubt.
