James Marsh / GB, 2014
English version / Czech subtitles, 124 min
Music for the 2014 biography about the physicist Stephen Hawkins helped with Jóhann Jóhannsson’s breakthrough in the field of current soundtrack composing. The motion picture directed by James Marsh describes the life of the brilliant scientist who’s confined to a wheelchair, and focuses on the relationship with his wife, Jane – who’s autobiography was used as the foundation base for the movie. The emotional story is complimented by Jóhannsson’s gentle soundtrack that is full of optimism and light. The composer won a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Score for this work and gained an Oscar and a Grammy Award nomination.
