The director of the film The Theory of Everything, James Marsh has told the gathered press at last night’s BAFTA awards that he had doubts every day while making it.

Speaking at the event, the director admitted the film’s success depended on “all the details.” When asked whether he had doubts about the film, Marsh replied, “Every day.” He continued saying, “You’re doing something which if you don’t get right all the details, the whole thing is going to fall apart. That’s as much down to the cast as to what we do …you’re kind of in this situation every day where you keep your standards very, very high and if you don’t, then the film is just going to disintegrate around you.”

The Theory of Everything¬†collected several awards at the ceremony, including the BAFTA for Outstanding British Film, as well as Adapted Screenplay. Star of the movie, Eddie Redmayne took home the BAFTA for¬†Leading Actor for his portrayal of Professor Stephen Hawking. Of his win Redmayne said in his acceptance speech that it was “one of the best nights of my life”.
