In more self-indulgent moments, I Google myself and find there are many Matt Singers in the world. There’s a folk singer, a fashion designer, a liberal blogger, and a former Canadian professional football player for the Manitoba Bisons. Though I’ve never met any of these men, their mere existence infuriates me. Who the hell are these jerks trying to steal my name? How can they be Matt Singer? I’m Matt Singer.

Marsh won an Oscar for directing ‘Man on Wire’ – a documentary detailing Philippe Petit’s high-wire walk between the two World Trade Center towers – and now he’s back on everyone’s awards radar with his Stephen Hawking biopic, ‘The Theory of Everything.’

Felicity Jones in ‘The Theory of Everything’ is a revelation of sorts. Think about how many times a biopic has been done and the lead female character is written off in reviews as “So and so was great in a thankless role.” Ignoring the cliché of the word “thankless,” that’s almost become a trope in movies like this: The “thankless” role for a woman. But, that’s what’s so fascinating about Jones in ‘The Theory of Everything,’ not only is she Great with a capital G playing the role of Stephen Hawking’s first wife, Jane Hawking, an argument could also be made that Jones is the true lead of this movie. Put another way: There are a lot of thanks to go around.
