How to test a theory about the nature of matter? Build a humungous machine that can slam some really fast moving things together and see if they go “bang!” This is the basic concept behind the biggest and most expensive experiment in history, intended to recreate conditions that existed just moments after the Big Bang. If the 10,000 scientists from over 100 countries find the so-called Higgs boson, then they may be able to explain the origin of all matter.

Filmmaker Mark Levinson and his team — including legendary editor Walter Murch ("The Godfather" I and II; "Apocalypse Now") — have created the best film about science in years, one that is as visually striking and suspenseful as anything you will see on the big screen this year. Particle Fever will not only make you smarter, but will restore your faith in humankind — now that’s something worthy of a Nobel Prize.

“Full disclosure: I cried at a movie about particle physics. And I wasn’t alone.”
- Clara Moskowitz, Scientific American

“A surefire crowd-pleaser with ravishing imagery and immensely likable subjects.”
- Ronnie Sheib, Variety
