New Indiewire article with three interview video clips (They are in my playlist above too):
How Eddie Redmayne transformed his body and mind to become Stephen Hawking
…since transforming himself into the ALS-afflicted Hawking through a grueling four-month process, Redmayne’s star has been rising, and with good reason. The performance, absent of caricature, is indeed one of the best of the year, and Redmayne is, no doubt, a shoo-in for a nomination…

London Evening Standard - The Theory of Everything - film review
‘Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones give performances that are not to be missed’
..."Redmayne is astounding here, a completely persuasive lookalike, somehow, from the shambling, grinning young man to the contorted figure deprived of almost all movement but still a hugely affecting presence, just through the tiniest movement of an eyebrow or lifting of a lip.

His physical acting is a marvel — embodying the relentless progress of the illness quite shockingly — but he also conveys Hawking’s intellect and force of personality no less convincingly and touchingly. For this he deserves all the awards going this year (it is interesting, by the way, to compare Benedict Cumberbatch’s performance in the 2004 BBC film Hawking, which seemed so good at the time but in comparison now looks flat).

In support, Charlie Cox (Jonathan Hellyer Jones) and Maxine Peake (Elaine Mason) are creditable but it is Felicity Jones who makes this relationship so moving, bringing such grace, intelligence and integrity of feeling to Jane. Her face moves the heart: simple as that. She’s Redmayne’s equal. These are performances not to be missed. It helps, of course, that the pair are improbably good-looking, with matching pouts even. But as casting that’s fine. The Theory of Everything turns this unusual marriage into a love story that speaks to all: it’s that good.”... (via)
