Many children make up, or begin to make up, imaginary languages. I have been at it since I could write.
Based on the life of the legendary author J.R.R. Tolkien, who brought us The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, Tolkien explores the early years of the orphaned author as he finds friendship, love and artistic inspiration among a group of fellow outcasts at school. It will be these younger years that will inspire him to write some of the most well-known classic fantasy novels of our time.
Check out the trailer below!
Experience the journey that shaped the imagination of the legendary author, J.R.R. Tolkien.
