Description : At the end of January 1963, 21-year old Stephen Hawking,
a young theoretical physicist, listened carefully to the words of a
senior neurologist as he explained that within two years, Stephen
would be dead. He had been diagnosed with motor neuron disease.
This is a record of the next two extraordinary years culminating
in one of the greatest scientific breakthroughs of any age.
This is an emotional and tender story - one of love, ambition, pride
and sacrifice. A record of human behavior at it's most extreme
limits as we witness the prospect of death nearly destroy and then
transform Stephen Hawking.
Impressing performance by the main actor: Benedict Cumberbatch as
he portrays the growth of Stephen's mind and the decay of his body.
Parallel story of Arno Penzias and Robert Wilson who recieved a Nobel prize
for their discovery of the leftover heat from the big bang is
also documented in this film.
