One paragraph, so many mistakes, though they did manage to work out the year the 1st World War started

Looks like a film to avoid at all costs.

"The film — featuring a script by Angus Fletcher, based on six years of interviews and archival research — will chart the tumultuous events that inspired him to pen Hobbit and Lord of the Rings trilogies: when war broke out in 1914, disrupting his Oxford life with his wife Edith Bratt, Tolkien embarked on four years of battle, hardship, and new friendships, which served to shape his imagination and start him on the path to Middle Earth."

I wish that Hollywood and the extended fan-base brought by it would just give it up now.

I think this is a dreadful idea for a movie.

IMO what we need to help us know about the events that led to The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings are well set out in The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings and a few other choice works.
