It is nice to see films about inspiring, outstanding and fascinating scientists making headlines and winning awards this Film Award season. Eddie Redmayne has won a bunch of highly renowned awards for his performance and portrayal of the famous astrophyisct Stephen Hawking in “The Theory of Everything“, while Benedict Cumberpatch has received a several nominations and much acclaim for his portrayal of Alan Turing in “The Imitation Game“. Two films I definitely plan to watch. And there are of course plenty of other scientists whose lives and stories must make for great film material. Here are a few suggestions from Alice Bell.
