Based on the life of famous physicist Stephen Hawkings, it is a wonderful movie to watch with your loved ones.

This movie is a gem. My husband suggested this movies, like all the others :), and surely it was a great watch. Based on the times when racism was at its peak in America, it is a movie about a young intelligent team of debaters from a Wiley College in Texas who aspire to compete with Harward team one day under the mentorship of great poet and professor. The Final round is immensely interesting where the Harward’s champion debating team is on the verge of defeating them.

This was a kind of new genre for me to watch. This movie is purely your choice to pick or not. It is about a robbery plan of one of Las Vegas  famous Casino by 11 creative heads. It is a fun watch truly.
