The Theory of Everything ★½

Undecided as to which is more offensive:

1. The implication that Hawking's work can only be understood, or even be relevant to us, an audience of normal dumb people, in how it validates or invalidates our concept of God.

2. The depiction of infidelity in which Jane's is fraught and melodramatic, to the point that mere knocking on another man's tent causes her husband to collapse into coma and never speak again (someone should do the math on this causality via montage) whereas Stephen's is seen as cute and inevitable (I mean, she's a nurse with red hair and boobs and she lets him read porn, why wouldn't he dissolve his marriage for her?)

Oh but it's oh so tasteful.
