53 julimar - Pure Brilliance
I loved this movie from the moment it began til the moment it ended. All actors were absolutely amazing.
hulklol - The story behind the literary genius
"Nothing can beat childhood", answered García Márquez when asked why he didn't write the second half of his autobiography. This movie is about Tolkien's childhood and youth, and how the experiences he lived as an orphan boy, specially his experiences of friendship and love, shaped his own mythology. Its a great, emotional story. You won't regret watching it.
P.d.: And for the moros who asked about C. S. Lewis, they didn't met in Tolkien's childhood or youth, they met years later.
Panzerthane - Huh?
Someone else below mentioned this, but why on earth is C.S. Lewis not a character? So odd.
romant55 - Amazing story
This is a must watch. Don’t worry about bad reviews, this movie has a heart.
aesthete27 - Underrated
An idealistic story about friendship, romantic love and the joys of intellect--ideas that have little currency in today's world and which are apparently too earnest for some sophisticated, jaded movie reviewers who see everything as a "trope." This movie would have been better reviewed and done better at the box office thirty years ago.
virgogrrl5 - Loved it
watched it on a date night with my husband. We both loved it. I don't know about Tokein's life so I'm not sure how the movie deviates from the truth. Regardless, it was a beautiful movie!
R7AA7R - What’s the point?
The film didn’t go too much in depth. Tried to mask it with few primitive effects/moments.
DirtyBrotherKiller03Gaming - Love it
Very touching story about his life which helped me to understand why he wrote so many great stories!
Svenskky - CS Lewis obliterated from story
Not one word about CS Lewis's great influence on Tolkien, or their deep friendship. Typical Hollywood rewriting of history. Very dissapointing.
sinela77 - Nelly
Great movie 👌
Boll Weevill - bad casting
obviously producers and screen writers’ neither studied nor researched very deep into this great literary story
Logos114 - Beauty. Friendship. Philology.
Really enjoyed this depiction of Tolkien’s life and some of his most formative relationships as a child and young man.
A Past User. - A Must-Watch
This movie is beautiful.
Sean32312 - Great movie!
I enjoyed watching this movie! Highly recommended!
Oxford92 - Wonderful insight into a beloved author
I loved learning a bit more about this wonderful author— especially the love story with Edith. I will make it a priority to visit their resting place in Oxford next time I’m there.
Zossima - Deeply moving, a beautifully woven tapestry
This compelling biopic covering J.R.R. Tolkien's youth into young adulthood is so intimately presented that repeated viewings yield great rewards. There is much here to absorb, and not a frame is wasted. Themes of love, fellowship, suffering, loss, self-sacrifice, noblility of spirit, and faith are patiently woven throughout the story, and Tolkien's brilliance and love of language and fantasy are balanced by an honest portrayal of the man in his youth (the stealing of a bus really happened). A haunting score by Thomas Newman and superb direction by Dome Karukoski are matched by top-tier performances from Nicholas Hoult and Lily Collins, with a wholly believable supporting cast. I saw it a few times in the theatre, and am very impressed that such a film has been made.
