The Theory of Everything - Film Poster

The Theory of Everything is the story of the most brilliant and celebrated physicist of our time, Stephen Hawking, and Jane Wilde the arts student he fell in love with whilst studying at Cambridge in the 1960s. Little was expected from Stephen Hawking, a bright but shiftless student of cosmology, given just two years to live following the diagnosis of a fatal illness at 21 years of age. He became galvanized, however, by the love of fellow Cambridge student, Jane Wilde, and he went on to be called the successor to Einstein, as well as a husband and father to their three children. Over the course of their marriage as Stephen’s body collapsed and his academic renown soared, fault lines were exposed that tested the lineaments of their relationship and dramatically altered the course of both of their lives.

Guardian review – 4 / 5 stars

Hawking’s story packs powerful punch. Boffin biopic built on towering performances from Eddie Redmayne as the physicist and Felicity Jones as his first wife.

Even the science becomes relatively digestible. Stand by for no fewer than three mealtime scenes in which someone explains Hawking’s theories using, variously, a potato on a fork, the swirl of cream in coffee and beer spilled on a pub table.

Rotten Tomatoes – 80%

Part biopic, part love story, The Theory of Everything rises on James Marsh’s polished direction and the strength of its two leads.

Hauru no ugoku shiro (original title)
Director: Hayao Miyazaki

Howl's Moving Castle Film Poster

A love story between an 18-year-old girl named Sofî, cursed by a witch into an old woman’s body, and a magician named Hauru. Under the curse, Sofî sets out to seek her fortune, which takes her to Hauru’s strange moving castle. In the castle, Sophie meets Hauru’s fire demon, named Karishifâ. Seeing that she is under a curse, the demon makes a deal with Sophie—if she breaks the contract he is under with Hauru, then Karushifâ will lift the curse that Sophie is under, and she will return to her 18-year-old shape.

Review – Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, Friday 23 September 2005

Miyazaki’s films require a conscious investment of attention; you have to immerse yourself in them, and soon you will find yourself floating, buoyed up by his gentleness, his visual exuberance, and his unshowy intelligence and emotional literacy. It is a lovely film for all ages.

Film starts 8.30pm – free admission

However as Peppy slowly rises through the industry, the introduction of talking-pictures turns Valentin’s world upside-down.
