Tolkien explores the formative years of the orphaned author as he finds friendship, love and artistic inspiration among a group of fellow outcasts at school. This takes him into the outbreak of World War I, which threatens to tear the “fellowship” apart. All of these experiences would inspire Tolkien to write his famous Middle-earth novels.

The film is directed by Dome Karukoski from a script by David Gleeson and Stephen Beresford. It is produced by Peter Chernin, Jenno Topping, David Ready, and Kris Thykier.

Tolkien will be released in cinemas on 3rd May 2019.
