Directed by Stephen Finnigan
A documentary profile of the world-renowned physicist and cosmologist.
Choosing to tell his story in his own words, Hawking allows director Stephen Finnigan unprecedented access to his private life, resulting in an intimate portrait of how, after being diagnosed with motor neurone disease when he was 21-years-old and given two years to live, he battled against the odds to become pre-eminent in his chosen field.
Documenting Hawking's journey through the major milestones in his life, from his early academic failures, the demands of his disability, his marriages and his eventual superstardom, the film also features dramatic reconstructions and testimonies from those who have known and worked with him during his life.
