This one is an engaging biopic of renowned astrophysicist Stephen Hawking right from his Cambridge days, his courting of his future wife, his motor neuron disease ,their subsequent misunderstandings,and his professional rise to the genius he was while propounding the black hole theory

Realistic to the core, the film clearly brings out the agony and pathos in the Professor's life along with nuances of his character. Actor Eddie Redmayne brings to life this multifaceted character most effectively and it is easily one of the best performances of recent times.No surprise that he has walked away with the best actor Oscar award. Felicity Jones as his wife is also excellent.

Some memorable scenes include the one where he enters the lab where scientists Thomson and Rutherford had worked on their discoveries, where he is given a standing ovation after he presents his doctoral thesis,and where he comes to terms with his disability.

Director James Marsh needs to be credited for a classic depiction of the journey of this genius as he shows great spirit while not only dealing with issues in quantum physics and cosmology but personal issues of his disability and marriage.

A well made film which does keep you engaged with some good story telling.
