The life of J.R.R. Tolkien, author of The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings and resident of Birmingham is unfolded in this fascinating biopic.

TOLKIEN explores the formative years of the orphaned author as he finds friendship, love and artistic inspiration among a group of fellow 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.

Did you know? This is Finnish Director Dome Karukoski's (Tom of Finland) first English language movie.
