Based on the life of high fantasy author J.R.R Tolkien (Nicholas Hoult), this biographical drama recounts the stages of Tolkien's life. From young orphan to schoolboy within an artistic group of friends, Tolkien navigates love with Edith Bratt (Lily Collins), loss with his traumatic serving as second lieutenant in WW1, and literary success after the war. Authoring The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, Tolkien found his literary voice later in life after a lifelong passion for make believe. Directed by Dome Karukoski, written by David Gleeson and Stephen Beresford. ~ Clare Perez-Izaguirre Lopez
