Tolkien explores the formative years of one of the world’s most famous authors, J.R.R. Tolkien, as an orphan who finds friendship, love and artistic inspiration among a fellow group of outcasts at school.
Their “fellowship” soon strengthens as Tolkien weathers the storm of a tumultuous courtship with Edith Bratt and the outbreak of World War I. These early life experiences later inspire the budding author to write the classic fantasy novels “The Hobbit” and “The Lord of the Rings.”
