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 such as The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion
It is directed by Dome Karukoski and written by David Gleeson and Stephen Beresford. The film stars Nicholas Hoult and Lily Collins.
