Audience Reviews for Hawking
Cumberbatch in much younger years, playing a mostly pre-ALS Stephen Hawking. Moffat interplays the cosmic background radiation discovery of Penzias & Wilson as a intermittent backdrop. The tension between Hawking and Hoyle was portrayed to dramatic effect, but I wonder how they actually were as colleagues.
I first saw Benedict Cumberbatch in the BBC TV show "Sherlock" and decided to look up what else he'd done. In this made-for-TV movie, he does an *excellent* job playing Stephen Hawking in the early days of his diagnosis. The movie's writer, Peter Moffat, also wrote the fairly-entertaining Einstein and Eddington, but the writing is sharper and more interesting in this older one. Well worth checking out for fans of biographies, science stories, or Benedict Cumberbatch.
