“The Theory of Everything” is so properly British. Its treatment of theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking’s first marriage to Jane Wilde is so restrained, so reserved, so decent, so stiff upper lip. It avoids any dramatic tension, even though there are scenes dying for one. It doesn’t want to offend.
“Fury” stars Brad Pitt in a movie which portrays a group of world war 2 soldiers who have survived many fights in a tank named, Fury. The movie is well-acted and we learn of the group thru the eyes of their newest recruit, Norman. Norman is a brand new soldier who has not been in nor had any exposure to the war. So his being assigned to Brad Pitt, the Sargeant, was not a pleasant experience.
