Hawking

HAWKING', FOLLOWS THE LIFE OF young theoretical physicist, 21-year-old Stephen Hawking, who was diagnosed with motor neurone disease prior to commencing his PhD at Oxford, and told that he would be dead in two years.

This drama records the next two extraordinary years culminating in one of the greatest scientific breakthroughs of any age. Like the discoveries of Galileo, Darwin and Einstein, it changed the way we think about ourselves and our universe.

Against all the odds and with the strength of his wife Jane Wilde, Stephen survived with his debilitating illness and went on to make the groundbreaking discovery that contributed to the Nobel Prize of 1978 and is still acknowledged today -- he is the author of the international best seller, 'A Brief History of Time'.

His story is emotional and tender one of love, ambition, pride and sacrifice. A record of human behaviour at its most extreme limits as we witness the prospect of death nearly destroying and then transforming Stephen Hawking.

A brilliant interpretation of the life of Stephen Hawking that humanises the Nobel Prize winner of 1978 that really makes the viewer connect with this extraordinary man. Benedict Cumberbatch really steals the show with his accurate portrayal of this living genius that I would recommend to all viewers who want some realism in their DVD viewing

Beautifully presented in an aspect ration of 16:9 widescreen with Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo, unfortunately no extras are included in this version.
