"Lord of the Rings allusions are the hook. Fans will enjoy spotting the references, but the real story is about a generation scythed down by war." - CNET

The Lord of the Rings continues to be one of the most-read, most beloved book series of all time, and with good reason. The level of thought and detail imbued in its pages gives it an air of authenticity that can make it easy to forget that someone actually had to make it all up. But what drove the man who devoted his life to the creation of this fictional world?

That’s what the new film Tolkien seeks to answer. Following a young J.R.R. Tolkien from childhood (Harry Gilby, Just Charlie) through young adulthood (Nicholas Hoult, Mad Max: Fury Road), the film chronicles how Tolkien channeled the most formative events of his life into the richly conceived fantasy world we've all come to love.

From the trenches of World War I to the libraries of Oxford, Tolkien provides a charming, moving, and intimate portrait of one of the most important artists of the 20th century.
