"The victim should have the right to end his life, if he wants. But I think it would be a great mistake. However bad life may seem, there is always something you can do, and succeed at. While there's life, there is hope." - Stephen Hawking
After watching the trailer four or five times, I am now more excited about it than ever. The film focuses on the time that Stephen gets diagnosed with the condition that was set to ruin his life. But we all know that that isn't how the story ends at all.
Little was expected from 21-year-old Stephen when he got the diagnosis that he had motor neuron disease as it was sure to cripple him, which it by all accounts did, but he was to exceed all expectations, especially when doctors gave him just two years to live.
From the trailer it's hard to see how far the film will follow Stephen's life but I am so excited to see it and have completely reserved New Year's Day.
"One, remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Two, never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it. Three, if you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don't throw it away." - Stephen Hawking
