Tolkien – Official Trailer and Plot

The film tells of the path that led the young Tolkien to create his universe, as can also be seen from the official synopsis of the film:

Tolkien explores the formative years of the orphaned author as he finds friendship, love and artistic inspiration in a group of marginalized schoolmates. This was until the outbreak of the First World War, which threatened to tear the “association” to pieces. Experiences that will inspire Tokien to write his famous Middle-earth novels.

Through this story, the viewer becomes aware of the youthful years and less known than the writer, from his studies at Oxford to the experience of the war, which changed him forever and which was the major source of inspiration for the creation of his novels. Other than The Lord of the Rings – JRR Tolkien is famous for the novel The Hobbit and for the Silmarillion, summa and genesis of the entire universe created by the author.

As Tstraw we find Nicolas Hoult, a boy prodigy launched by the film About a boy, best known for the role of Beast in some chapters of the saga X-Men and most recently seen in The Great series, for which he was nominated for a Golden Globe. To lend his face to his future wife Edith Bratt and instead Lily Collins, also recently nominated for a Golden Globe, for her role in the chat series Emily in Paris.

After seeing Tolkien’s masterpieces come to life on the big screen, we just have to enjoy the great adventure that was his life.

Appointment therefore to 13 August.
