TOLKIEN explores the formative years of the orphaned author J.R.R. Tolkien (Nicholas Hoult) as he finds friendship, love and artistic inspiration among a fellow group of outcasts at school.
This takes him into the outbreak of World War I, which threatens to tear the “fellowship” apart. All of these experiences would inspire Tolkien to write his famous Middle-Earth novels.
“Convincing and compelling (…) There’s even room for that great British pastime: taking the piss” (flicks.co.nz)
