Nicholas Hoult stars in this touching drama about the famous author as a young man.

An orphaned teenager finds friendship, love and artistic inspiration among a group of fellow outcasts at school, but the outbreak of World War I threatens to tear the fellowship apart. All of these experiences would inspire Tolkien to write his famous Middle-Earth novels.

Running time: 2h12, including ads and trailers.
