Eddie Redmayne is absolutely phenomenal in this movie.  His Stephen Hawking is impish, charismatic, and endlessly watchable – both before and after the symptoms of his ALS kick in.  The movie, like virtually all biopics, is frustratingly scattered, but it’s a worthy enough container for Redmayne’s tremendous performance – although whoever’s responsible for the godawful color correction (or lack thereof?) should be fired and probably hanged.
