Program Description


This film covers the formative years of renowned author J.R.R. Tolkien as he finds friendship, courage and motivation among a group of fellow outcasts at school. Their bond strengthens as they mature, until the outbreak of World War II, which threatens to tear the fellowship apart. Tolkien's early life experiences later inspired him to write his famous middle-earth novels.
