Tolkien explores the formative years of the orphaned author as he finds friendship, love and artistic inspiration among a group of fellow outcasts at school.

The film was in development since 2013, but didn't start to gain real traction until 2017 when the director and cast came onboard. Production ran from October - December 2017.
