In the 1960s, Cambridge University student and future physicist Stephen Hawking falls in love with fellow collegian Jane Wilde. At 21, Hawking learns that he has motor neuron disease. Despite this -- and with Jane at his side -- he begins an ambitious study of time, of which he has very little left, according to his doctor. He and Jane defy terrible odds and break new ground in the fields of medicine and science, achieving more than either could hope to imagine.

Featuring a Q & A following the screening.

Science in the Cinema is sponsored by the Arts & Humanities in Health & Medicine Program & the Office of Research in the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry at the U of A.
