About Tolkien 💬

How did the world of Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit and Middle Earth come into being?

John Ronald Reuel Tolkien (3 January 1892 - 2 September 1973) was an English writer, poet, philologist, and academic, who is best known as the author of the classic high fantasy works The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion.

TOLKIEN takes us inside the imaginative life of author J.R.R. Tolkien, played by Nicholas Hoult.

TOLKIEN explores the formative years of the renowned author's life as he finds friendship, courage and inspiration among a fellow group of writers and artists at school. Their brotherhood strengthens as they grow up and weather love and loss together, including Tolkien's tumultuous courtship of his beloved Edith Bratt (Lily Collins), until the outbreak of the First World War which threatens to tear their fellowship apart. All of these experiences would later inspire Tolkien to write his famous Middle-earth novels.


''I've been a fan of Tolkien since I was 12 years old so the most important thing to me was to bring all the emotions I had reading his books to this movie.''

Dome Karukoski

''The more you learn about Tolkien, the more you are amazed by all his achievements and ideas. As an actor, you have to reconcile with the fact that when playing a real person. You can't impersonate them, so you try to capture some of their living essence.''

Nicholas Hoult as J.R.R. Tolkien

''Tolkien and Edith had such a deep love and a connection that it could never be broken. They were each other's escape but also each other's reality.''

Lily Collins as Edith Bratt
