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.

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel - Film Poster

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is the expansionist dream of Sonny (Dev Patel), and it’s making more claims on his time than he has available, considering his imminent marriage to the love of his life, Sunaina (Tina Desai). Sonny has his eye on a promising property now that his first venture, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel for the Elderly and Beautiful, has only a single remaining vacancy – posing a rooming predicament for fresh arrivals Guy (Richard Gere) and Lavinia (Tamsin Greig). Evelyn and Douglas (Judi Dench and Bill Nighy) have now joined the Jaipur workforce, and are wondering where their regular dates for Chilla pancakes will lead, while Norman and Carol (Ronald Pickup and Diana Hardcastle) are negotiating the tricky waters of an exclusive relationship, as Madge (Celia Imrie) juggles two eligible and very wealthy suitors. Perhaps the only one who may know the answers is newly installed co-manager of the hotel, Muriel (Maggie Smith), the keeper of everyone’s secrets.

Mark Kermode – Guardian Review -March 2015

The stellar cast returns to India for a likable but ramshackle continuation of a winning formula

62% Rotten Tomatoes

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is about as original as its title — but with a cast this talented and effortlessly charming, that hardly matters.
