Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that The Theory of Everything is a biopic about world-renowned physicist Stephen Hawking (Eddie Redmayne). It's inspiring, but it doesn't shy away from exploring the indignities visited upon Hawking when he's diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease. It also deals with some mature subjects -- including marital discord, infidelity, and near-death experiences -- and has some frank conversations about sexuality (as well as hints of sex between Hawking and his wife and a glimpse of a character looking through Penthouse magazine). Characters discuss the existence of God. It's all engrossing, compelling stuff, but it might be a little mature for tweens and younger.

Sexual Content

Some kissing and frank discussion of Hawking's sexuality in the face of a motor-neuron disease. In one scene, he's shown paging through a Penthouse magazine with the help of a female assistant.


At one point Hawking suffers what looks to be a pretty painful fall and is shown suffering through his illness.


"Sod off," "tits," and "damn."

Social Behavior

No matter how grave the diagnosis that Hawking receives, he doesn't let it get in the way of what he wants to do with his life and work, thanks in large part to his supportive wife, Jane, who makes sure he has everything he needs.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Some social drinking at pubs and events.
