A Film Review

The Theory of Everything
Biographical drama, 2014

The Theory of Everything is about the scientist Stephen Hawking. The film is based on a book, ‘Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen’ by his wife, Jane Wilde Hawking. The film is set in England and starts in the early 1960s. It tells the story of Hawking’s relationship with Jane, the diagnosis of his motor neuron disease and his success as a physicist.

I love the acting in this film. Eddie Redmayne stars as Hawking and Felicity Jones plays the role of Jane. My favourite character is Stephen Hawking because he is very clever and brave.

I think this is an ideal film for people who like true stories. It is a bit sad at times but the story is very interesting and there is a lot of action. I give The Theory of Everything

  1. Ayla: The Daughter of War
    Drama, Romantic, 2017
    Ayla is about Sergeant Süleyman. It tells the story of Sergeant Süleyman’s meeting with a little Korean girl being amidst the ravages of the Korean War.The film is based on a true story and it is set in Korea in 1950.
    Sergeant Süleyman stumbles upon a half-frozen little girl, with no parents and no help in sight. Scared and on the verge of death, this little girl captures the heart of Süleyman, who risks his own life to save her. Not knowing her name, Süleyman names her Ayla, in reminiscence of the moon on the fateful night during which they met. The two form an instantaneous and inseparable bond, and Ayla, almost effortlessly, brings an uncanny joy to the Turkish brigade in the grip of war. As the war comes to a close however, Süleyman’s brigade is told that they will be returning home. Süleyman cannot bear abandoning Ayla, and does everything within his power to take her with him. After repeated failure, he is forced to give Ayla to an orphanage, but doesn’t give up on the hope of one day reuniting with her. Will the two ever get back together?
    I love this true story. İsmail Hacıoğlu plays the role of Sergeant Süleyman. My favorite character is absolutely Ayla because she is very clever and brave.

    I think this is an ideal film for people who like true stories. It i quite sad at times but the story is very important in terms of our World History. I give Ayla ★★★★. Go and watch it soon!
