    Not as good as Theory of Everything. Cumberbatch does well though.

    Cumberbatch sensitively portrays Hawking's early years at Cambridge and the early development of motor neuron disease in a film that places as much weight on the humanity of the characters as much as the incredible science.

    "We are very very small, but we are profoundly capable of very very big things." The combination of BC and BBC is incredible.

    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.

    Cumberbatch was brilliant in this otherwise not-too-interesting biopic of Hawking. It was as if Cumberbatch took on Hawking's mind, passion, brashness, sense of humor, frustration and joys!

    A brilliant and humane biopic about the genius. Cumberbatch gives a wonderful performance, conveying all of the feelings one might believe someone in Hawking's situation might feel. Watching the bright, hopeful genius descend into a state where he had to talk through a computer was utterly heart wrenching. A triumph!
