At the age of 21, Stephen is diagnosed of motor neuron disease. The disease results in muscle dislocation and problems in leading a normal life. Although his brain is not to be affected by this disease. He is told that he has two years to live. Jane, despite knowing his physical situation, marries him.

The movie on the whole is a terrific representation of true love, commitment and dedication. Eddie Redmayne performed the physical transformation with excellence. Felicity Jones did an amazing job for Stephen’s wife. The way she takes charge of his life and makes him survive is one of the things that keeps you glued to the screen. Love, allegiance and success is defined as best as it could be. The theory of everything is a must watch if you are looking for some inspirational movie.
