Director: Dome Karukoski
Actors: Nicholas Hoult, Lily Collins, Patrick GibsonTake a glimpse into the early days of the man who brought us tales of Hobbits, elves and one particular ring with TOLKIEN, the new biopic from Dome Karakoski.
The film is the revealing story of how one man found an entirely new world while trying to navigate the horrors of a war-torn real one.
TOLKIEN explores the formative years of the renowned author’s life as he finds friendship, courage and inspiration among a group of fellow 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.
