Awesome movie, great acting and subject. All in all inspiring.
An amazing movie and a must-see movie. Redmayne was outstanding playing the role of Hawking. I would highly recommend this film to all.
Though story is amazing and acting was good the delivery of this type of movie was exceptionally long.
a very poignant movie about a truly amazing man.. How many of us would have carried on with as many years as he has had with his circumstances . A very well played role, truly deserving of the award won!
the acting was great, but not crazy about the movie, sort of dull and boring, but watchable.
A must see movie. Redmayne as Hawking spot on. Excellent well worth the time and money.
I thought the movie was very well done, actor for Steven really acting out ALS. Appreciated how clean it was, no violence , no swearing, no visible sex or nakedness. Overall great story presented although have not read the book.
Redmayne was amazing. I hope he gets the Oscar. Good movie.
Wonderful Film! Eddie Redmayne does an amazing portrayal of Professor Hawking through the years. A unique love story and a beautiful mind.
This is the best movie I have seen in many years. It should win Best picture, best Female actor, Felicity Jones takes the movie to greatness with her nuanced performance, and Ed Redmayne does the same as best actor. This movie just nails it in all categories, I haven't shed so many tears for a true story. Two lives of two great people acted by two great young actors. You cannot beat that. Should win three Oscars at least.
Awesome movie. Loved it. It deserves a few awards, including best movie and best actor. I definitely recommend it.
This movie is a lot of little things done really well. Acting, editing, cinematography, music, sound, production design, casting, direction- the whole package. Should be voted the best picture, and best acting for both leads. Who knew that 4 words spoken by a computer voice could have so much emotion that they brought me to uncontrollable tears? That's what comes from lots of little things done well. Best movie I've seen in a long, long time.
Remarkably well acted. The film is one of the best if not the best that I've seen in the last 5 years. Should receive multiple Oscar nods. As a physicist, I think the script simplified some of the academic subject matter well enough for most to understand. It's a fantastic journey through 20 years of Stephen Hawking's life.
great story,great acting,really worth seeing
Both my husband and I thought this movie was excellent. It was thought-provoking. We spent our supper hour following the movie discussing both the movie itself and the story behind it. The acting also was excellent, both male and female leads, especially. We only wish that there were more films of this calibre being made.
Generally good film despite all kinds of historical fudging and plain making stuff up. Eddie Redmayne gives the best performance of the year. It all evens out.
Great movie - terrific acting by Eddie Redmayne should earn him an Oscar nod - too bad its only showing in a few select theatres.
This movie is terrific and should earn Oscars in more than one category.
Saw a sneak peek and it was OK. I didn't know this guy was real.
It was a really well done movie. Great acting and what a remarkable storyline. I always wondered about Hawkins personal life and how he did it all these years. Such a good movie!!
Under no circumstances should anyone with direct experience of ALS go to this movie. It is excellent, so excellent that it brings back every last horrific experience as if it were yesterday.
