(there's some spoilers here for those who don't know the entire Hawking story but they are imperative to the review).
This is one of those films that you probably want to give a miss. On the outside, it's a biopic of a man most people think they know about, the legend that is Stephen Hawking, and the film itself seems like some pretentious award bait (as a real life story involving some sort of disease is always a shoe in). But I'm here to tell you that it is all crap and I’m going to persuade you to go see it, because I want everyone to see it. I cried and I laughed. Sometimes you were still wiping away tears whilst giggling at a cracking one liner - and in a robotic American voice no less!
