We have 10 FREE double passes to see an advance screening of Tolkien on May 6

Tolkien

Tons of British actors in this one

“Hello, my precious. Do you want the ring? No. OK then, how about 20 free tickets to a film about the bloke who invented that character? Sorted, Bilbo.”

We made some of that quote up, but if you love The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings then you have to see this film — Tolkien — that 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, 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.

Here’s the trailer:
