A big bang!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Hawking [DVD] (DVD)
A gripping account of the famous physicists diagnosis of motor neuron disease at the age of 21, and his subsequent discoveries in the field of cosmology, in particular his work on the big bang and black holes. Hawking's neurological demise is excellently portrayed by Benedict Cumberbatch, and the blossoming relationship between Hawking and his future wife Jane, in the face of his rapidly diminishing health, is beautifully depicted. Hawking's realisation of the concept that led to his explanation of the big bang is an incredibly uplifting moment. I could not recommend this highly enough!
