A Brief History of Time

An outstanding portrait of cosmologist Stephen Hawking, who's afflicted with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and communicates verbally with a voice synthesizer. In his best-selling book, from which the film is named, he explains the nature of this universe in layman's terms. A unique experience.
