Hawking stars Benedict Cumberbatch as the young Stephen Hawking who, as a bright and ambitious 21-year-old PhD student at Cambridge University, is diagnosed with the debilitating motor neurone disease and given two years to live. Against the odds, he goes on to achieve scientific success and worldwide acclaim, in particular with his best-selling book A Brief History Of Time.
Note: We saw this on Father’s Day (at my dad’s request) and it was a really good movie. Benedict Cumberbatch does a great job of portraying Stephen Hawking who is one of the world’s most famous men of science. I think Hawking has some good things to say but as a man of faith I believe that God is responsible for creation, however I see there is some things about time and space that can be divinely created. I came away from this with a new respect for the contributions of Stephen Hawking.
