United International Pictures (UIP) announced today that it will release The Theory of Everything.

Starring Eddie Redmayne in the lead role, this romantic drama follows the life of world-renowned theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking while studying at Cambridge University in the 1960s. During this time, Hawking falls passionately in love with an art student, who later becomes his wife, Jane Wilde, played by Felicity Jones. Hawking is diagnosed with motor neurone disease at the tender age of just 21 and as his world opens up, his relationship with Wilde leads him through personal and scientific challenges, as well as significant career breakthroughs that would lead to his fame.

Inspired by Jane Wilde’s memoir, Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen, the movie is directed by Man on Wire’s James Marsh and co-stars two-time Academy Award nominee Emily Watson and David Thewli.

The Theory of Everything will be released by Ster-Kinekor and Nu Metro cinemas nationwide on February 6, 2015.
