John Ronald Reuel Tolkien dreamed up a whole world, but the seeds of Middle Earth sprung from our own. Finnish director Dome Karukoski idles back into the orphaned author’s youth – his schooldays in rural Worcestershire, his childhood romance with Edith Bratt and his call-up to the trenches on the Western Front – to ask how fact and fiction entwine. Nicholas Hoult leads an impressive cast of emerging talent, including Lily Collins (daughter of Phil Collins) and rising stage stars Anthony Boyle, Tom Glynn-Carney and Patrick Gibson.
