Tolkien

12A

Last shown on 16 May 2019

Tolkien explores the formative years of the renowned author’s life as he finds friendship, courage and inspiration among a fellow group of writers and artists at school. Their brotherhood strengthens as they grow up and weather love and loss together, including Tolkien’s tumultuous courtship of his beloved Edith Bratt, until the outbreak of the First World War which threatens to tear their fellowship apart. All of these experiences would later inspire Tolkien to write his famous Middle-earth novels.

Directed by Dome Karukoski (Tom of Finland), Tolkien is written by David Gleeson (Cowboys & Angels) and Stephen Beresford (Pride), and stars Nicholas Hoult as J.R.R. Tolkien with Lily Collins as his future wife and muse Edith.
