Tolkien, in theaters May 10, 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.
Earlier in the day, Lily and Nicholas were seen promoting the film at the BBC Radio studio.
FYI: Lily is wearing a Giambattista Valli gown. Nicholas is wearing Burberry.
