About this Film

Tolkien

ODEON says...
Exploring the formative years of the legendary author, ‘Tolkien’ takes us back to his youth as he forms a brotherhood of fellow writers and artists at school.

Their bond strengthens as they grow up, and Tolkien begins a tumultuous relationship with his beloved Edith Bratt. But when the First World War breaks out, it threatens to tear apart their fellowship and everything they’ve built together.

Chronicling the experiences that would inspire his famous stories of Middle-earth, ‘Tolkien’ stars Nicholas Hoult and Lily Collins.

Oh dear

Reviewer: Godfather Part 2Date: 2019-05-20

Bored of the rings! This film did not engage me - it was ponderous, symbolic and dull. After the glowing public reviews i was expecting so much more. Almost torturous it was so slow. Not for me although i love Tolkein's books!

Utterly boring

Reviewer: EvangelistDate: 2019-05-15

What a dull, boring and unexciting film. I fell asleep, that's how uninteresting it was! Waste of time watching it.

Watchable

Reviewer: daveh44Date: 2019-05-14

Nothing to add, but do go and see it.

Sumptuous Biopic

Reviewer: Alison MDate: 2019-05-08

Really enjoyed this film. Biopics can be slow as although the subject may be extraordinary, events shaping them may not have been. Not so here. This is about love, loss and language and how they inspired Tolkien to create his fantasy masterpieces.
