How a love of science amazed the whole world in a true story brought to life in this film. Is it for geeks only???

Acting - A+ Writing - A+ This is an often overlooked long-distance collaboration with Eddington and Einstein. The two lead actors, Tennant and Serkin, seemed to have studied their characters and played them well. The conflicts of the times were not overlooked but the science came through on top. All in all, another BBC triumph.

I'm an italian teacher of mathematics and physics in secondary school.
My question was if this movie could be used in classroom to make students understand something about Relativity in a more exciting way.
Well, the answer is no. The focus of the movie is not on the physical theory, but on the relationships between the characters and between science and society.
Anyway it is a good movie with good rhythm. More interesting for those who already know Einstein's theory history.

Glad to have seen it as Eddington was totally unknown to me. Parts of the plot lost me and did not make sense.

I did enjoy this film but as a serious researcher on the subject found it rather confusing and oversimplified for a general audience. Sir Oliver Lodge was the principal of Birmingham University from 1900-1919. So why the writer chose him as the chief adversary of Eddington and portrayed him as being affiliated with Cambridge on a deeper level was confusing. Although Lodge knew many of the Cambridge scientists and visited frequently, it should have been made clearer as to what his position was among his colleagues. As many of the Cambridge scientists of the time remained single, I thought it a cheap shot at intimating something more than a deep feeling of loss for his friend.
