Eddie Redmayne in Les MisérablesEddie Redmayne in Les Misérables

The romantic drama THEORY OF EVERYTHING directed by Academy Award winner James Marsh (Man on Wire) will be released in the US by Focus Features in exclusive engagements beginning Friday, November 7th, 2014.  THEORY OF EVERYTHING stars Eddie Redmayne (Les Misérables) as theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking, world-famous as the author of A Brief History of Time, opposite Gotham Independent Film Award winner Felicity Jones (Like Crazy).

The movie explores the excitement of the 1960s for Stephen as he studies at Cambridge University. At the dawn of a brilliant life’s work, he falls passionately in love with arts student Jane Wilde. Their relationship leads him through personal and scientific challenges and breakthroughs, and as his world opens up he opens up the entire world to new ways of seeing.

Jane’s memoir Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen inspired the new film; the screenplay is by Anthony McCarten, who is producer on the film with Lisa Bruce (producer of Working Title’s Mary and Martha) and Working Title co-chairs Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner.

The cast of THEORY OF EVERYTHING also includes two-time Academy Award nominee Emily Watson and David Thewlis (Harry Potter). The creative team also includes cinematographer Benoît Delhomme (Lawless), production designer John Paul Kelly (Working Title’s About Time), costume designer Steven Noble (Under the Skin), and film editor Jinx Godfrey (marking her seventh feature with Mr. Marsh).
