Fifth about The Seventh

The Theory of Everything (2014)

The Theory of EverythingThe Theory of Everything: Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne give wonderfully charming performances. While he had to face great physical challenges (and he thoroughly succeeds), hers is the character that truly anchors the film. James Marsh’s film, nevertheless, is otherwise conventional, unchallenging in its pedestrian efficiency as it tells an inspiring but unexciting story. Jóhann Jóhannsson’s score is beautiful, but very traditional, and so is Benoît Delhomme’s cinematography. There’s nothing particularly wrong with this film, but other than the great acting, nothing particularly great either.
