For those who are ready to push away from a groaning Thanksgiving table, having eaten their fill and given thanks, there are four new films to choose from for families to watch at the cinema. Comedy rules the turkey day weekend with two very funny offerings. Out of the comedic films, one is for kids, big and little, and the other is of the more grown up variety; lastly there is one of the best romance stories of modern times and a historical drama that will make one think.
Working Title Films have brought out The Theory of Everything, which is a sort of biographical love story about Stephen Hawking and his relationship with his first wife, Jane. The British film industry have produced two features this year that are both quintessentially English, so much so that one can almost smell tea and crumpets from the screen, the other movie that fits this description is the wartime film about Alan Turing. The Theory of Everything is not so much about the world famous physicist, but about his years with the first love of his life and giving a glimpse into workings of the scientist who has been called one of the smartest men in the world.
