Einstein Biopic

I am venturing far afield with this post as science was never my strong suit in school. Nevertheless, I was intrigued to hear that Giovanni Ribisi would be playing Albert Einstein in a new flick that explores the genius's relationship with his first wife, Mileva Maric. (Great casting, incidentally.) My question: Will the filmmakers be brave enough to touch upon the oft scoffed-at (but I think credible) theory that Mileva (also a mathemetician) had a substantial role in helping her husband develop his theory of relativity? (The woman behind the man, indeed!) -- Amy
