Cert. 12A / Running Time 2hrs.

Cast includes Eddie Redmayne, in his BAFTA and Oscar winning performance, as renowned astro physicist, Stephen Hawking, and Felicity Jones as Hawking's first wife, Jane Wilde.

Once a healthy, active young man, Hawking received an earth-shattering diagnosis at 21 years of age. With Jane fighting tirelessly by his side, Stephen embarks on his most ambitious scientific work, studying the very thing he now has precious little of - time. Together, they defy impossible odds, breaking new ground in medicine and science, and achieving more than they could ever have dreamed.

"... a film to leave you reeling but cheered, too. It's about battling love, as well as illness. A universal story, extracted from a unique one" - Catherine Shoard, The Guardian.

Memorial Hall, Charlbury at 7.30pm
Doors & licensed bar from 6.45pm

Tickets: £5 / U15s £3, on sale at the door.

Unfortunately, the delivery goes astray and winds up in the hands of Saajan (Irrfan Khan), an irritable widower.
