Stogumber Cinema present Tolkien
13 September 2019 - 7:30 am - 10:00 pm| £3 – £16
Tolkien (Cert 12A), documents the early adult life of John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, professor of Anglo-Saxon and English and author of ‘The Hobbit’ and ‘The Lord of the Rings’. The film follows Tolkien’s tumultuous courtship with Edith Bratt and illustrates the brotherhood of fellow students at Oxford University and ‘brothers in arms’ in World War 1, providing the inspiration for his fantasy novels. The young adult Tolkien is sensitively played by Nicholas Hoult and his wife, Edith, is admirably portrayed by Lily Collins.
