30 Film Females: The Theory Of Everything (2014)

If you haven’t read Jane Hawking’s memoir about her life with theoretical physicist Stephen, I can thoroughly recommend it. Although actor Eddie Redmayne was feted for his mind-over-matter peformance in The Theory Of Everything, it is Felicity Jones who truly anchors the film with bravery and compassion.

I’m tempted to call this doodle “A Brief History Of Dime Bars”.  It originated in an old blog post spoofing on mathematical figures/graphs around PCOS food/weight issues.  Of course, Einstein’s real mass-equivalence equation is famously the only one to feature in Stephen Hawking’s popular science book A Brief History Of Time. Incidentally, as an ex-Cambridge resident I once happened to sit next to Stephen at the cinema…

Honourable mentions for 2014: appropriately, Jessica Chastain’s tenacious physicist (and Anne Hathaway’s biologist) in Interstellar.  Also, Emily Blunt’s super soldier in Edge Of Tomorrow.
