Oscars: The Theory of Everything

By: Gabriela Yareliz

It was quite the match: a church-going, angelic-voiced polyglot filled with hope and an intelligent, boyish and mysterious scientist filled with angst. She became his lifesaver in more ways than one.

I am so hoping that The Theory of Everything gets Best Picture tonight at the Oscars. There are some serious inaccuracies in the film as compared to Jane Hawking’s autobiography. However, I think the former Mrs. Hawking’s life deserves a standing ovation. While things were not as amicable and simple as the film presents, what is portrayed: the strength, love, passion– everything that makes our hearts warm and fuzzy, that is what should be; what often is, but not for long.

People’s mistakes, victories, difficulties, beliefs, struggles, weaknesses, strengths or tragedies can help us determine what we hope for, and more than that, they can help push us to achieve what we dream.
