I had heard that the family had not cooperated at all with the making of this film, nevertheless I found it very engaging. I hadn't realised how much hardship Tolkein had endured during his childhood, mitigated in part by fortunate mentorship later on. As well as fleshing out his innate genius, and what inspired him to write the trilogy the film offered a fascinating glimpse of an era long gone.
