Summary
Errol Morris turns his camera on one of the most fascinating men in the world: the pioneering astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, afflicted by a debilitating motor neuron disease that has left him without a voice or the use of his limbs. An adroitly crafted tale of personal adversity, professional triumph, and cosmological inquiry, Morris{u2019}s documentary examines the way the collapse of Hawking{u2019}s body has been accompanied by the untrammeled broadening of his imagination. Telling the man{u2019}s incredible story through the voices of his colleagues and loved ones, while making dynamically accessible some of the theories in Hawking{u2019}s best-selling book of the same name, A Brief History of Time is at once as small as a single life and as big as the ever-expanding universe
