Friday & Saturday 11th/12th October: 8pm
As a young student J.R.R. Tolkien, author of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, finds love, friendship and artistic inspiration among a group of fellow outcasts. Their brotherhood soon strengthens as Tolkien weathers the storm of a tumultuous courtship with Edith Bratt and the outbreak of World War I.
This film approaches its subject with an interest in the development of Tolkien’s ideas, his passion for philology and his love of myths and legends. A well acted, enjoyable biopic that sheds overdue light on a, until now, rather shadowy figure.
