Dome Karukoski’s TOLKIEN explores the formative years of the renowned author’s life as he finds friendship, courage and inspiration among a fellow group of writers and artists at school. Their brotherhood strengthens as they grow up and weather love and loss together, including Tolkien’s tumultuous courtship of his beloved Edith Bratt, until the outbreak of the First World War threatens to tear their fellowship apart. All of these experiences would later inspire Tolkien to write his famous Middle-earth novels.
Directed by Dome Karukoski (TOM OF FINLAND), TOLKIEN stars Nicholas Hoult as J.R.R. Tolkien with Lily Collins as his future wife and muse Edith.
Our post-screening Q&A, hosted by Stephen Colbert, with stars Nicholas Hoult and Lily Collins, and director Dome Karukoski, will be broadcast into cinemas around the country, live from the Montclair Film Festival. Join us for this special event!
