SYNOPSIS

With Introduction from Professor Brian Greene

In recognition of the extraordinary life and achievements of the late Stephen Hawking, world-renowned theoretical physicist, cosmologist and author of 'A Brief History of Time', the World Science Festival Brisbane in partnership with the Australian Cinémathèque will present a free special event screening of The Theory of Everything including an opening tribute from World Science Festival co-founder Professor Brian Greene.

'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. Starring Eddie Redmayne ("Les Misérables") and Felicity Jones ("The Amazing Spider-Man 2"), this is the extraordinary story of one of the world's greatest living minds, the renowned astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, who falls deeply in love with fellow Cambridge student Jane Wilde. Once a healthy, active young man, Hawking received an earth-shattering diagnosis at 21 years of age. With Jane fighting tirelessly by his side, Stephen embarks on his most ambitious scientific work, studying the very thing he now has precious little of – time. Together, they defy impossible odds, breaking new ground in medicine and science, and achieving more than they could ever have dreamed. The film is based on the memoir 'Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen', by Jane Hawking, and is directed by Academy Award winner James Marsh ("Man on Wire").' Universal Pictures
