Bring Back: Tolkien
Nicholas Hoult takes the lead role in this moving take on the early life of John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, whose experiences growing up in the Midlands would ultimately inform the greatest fantasy saga ever written.
Tolkien focuses on the formative years of the renowned author’s life as he finds friendship, courage and inspiration among a fellow group of writers and artists at school. Their brotherhood strengthens as they grow up and weather love and loss together, including Tolkien’s tumultuous courtship of his beloved Edith Bratt (Lily Collins), until the outbreak of the First World War threatens to tear their fellowship apart.
