Tolkien is a biopic drama which explores the formative years of the celebrated fantasy writer. Orphaned as a child, he finds friendship, love and artistic inspiration among a fellow group of outcasts at school. However, the outbreak of World War I and their subsequent conscription into combat threatens to tear the “fellowship” apart. All of these experiences would inspire Tolkien to write his famous Middle-Earth novels.
