An excellent film describing Tolkien's difficult childhood and the trauma of the Fist World War. This explains how he was able to produce the LOTR. Fans need to see this film.

This is a must see for all Tolkien fans. It sets up the story of how he created the Fellowship and the reasoning behind Mordor and the quest for the one ring.

There was so many little tidbits of facts and information in there that made me go oh oh oh!
Tolkien was a fascinating man and this tiny glimpse into his creativity was astonishing.

Nicholas Hoult did a wonderful job portraying the great writer.

However, if you are not a Lord of the Rings fan or of World War 1, this might not be your cup of tea.
