Title: Tolkien
Genre: Historical Fiction
Release Date: May 10th, 2019
My Rating: 4/5
IMDB Rating: 6.9/10 

Summary from IMDB: The formative years of the orphaned author J.R.R. Tolkien as he finds friendship, love and artistic inspiration among a group of fellow outcasts at school.

Review: I thought this movie was really interesting. How much of it was really based on Tolkien's life, I couldn't say, but the way that he was portrayed made him look like a wonderful person, so full of life. I love Lily Collins, she is an amazing actress. At first, I didn't know it was her, she looked so mature and her accent was British, haha. It was her though. 

This movie made me want to rewatch the hobbit movies and the Lord of the Ring movies. Of course, my husband went out and bought the hobbit on DVD and we have been watching it non-stop since. If you like a good love story set during world war 1, with a wonderful fantasy overlay, then check out Tolkien.
