Review

Glosses over Hawkings achievements and concentrates on the relationship with his wife as his condition worsens. More romantic drama than biopic.

Redmayne is amazing as Hawkins and must surely get a nom for best actor at the Oscars. Here’s me thinking he was just that ginger fella off Les Mis, but he can act!

If the Hawkings performance wasn’t as convincing as it is this wouldn’t be worth a watch but Redmayne saves it.
