The Theory of Everything tells the story of Stephen Hawking's early life and his beginnings in science. We’ll be looking to Netflix as to whether or not you can stream the fantastic film on the streaming service.
The movie, which was released in 2015, was billed as a thriller but also contained elements of romance. Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones were the two key stars as they played out Stephen’s earlier life when he attended university and probably most importantly when he discovers his ALS condition.
The movie doesn’t delve too much into the science he was associated with, but there are plenty of documentaries on Netflix that do just that.
Eddie Redmayne, the actor who played Stephen Hawking, has been leading the tributes to this professor saying:
“We have lost a truly beautiful mind, an astonishing scientist and the funniest man I have ever had the pleasure to meet. My love and thoughts are with his extraordinary family.”
To celebrate his life, you’re probably looking for whether The Theory of Everything is streaming on Netflix. Here’s a break down of where it is streaming and if it isn’t, where else you can find it.
Sadly, The Theory of Everything isn’t streaming on Netflix in the United States and hasn’t done since its release despite Netflix having a good relationship with the movie’s distributor. You can instead find the movie on Amazon Prime's Cinemax channel (a separate subscription required).
Members in the US can also rent the movie through Netflix DVD but be warned, it’s likely that demand will now rise because of his untimely death.
For a time, The Theory of Everything was available on Netflix UK. It was removed last year and currently doesn’t have a streaming home on any competitors such as Amazon or NowTV meaning you’ll have to resort to VoD services.
According to Unogs, currently the two countries streaming the movie are Canada and the Netherlands. You may be able to find additional regions. They currently track only 21 Netflix territories. The movie can be accessed directly via Netflix.
