Drama At the turn of the 20th century, J. R. R. Tolkien is a teenage orphan living in the care of Catholic priest Father Francis Morgan. He falls for Edith Bratt but the holy man drives a wedge between the teenage love birds. During this period of courtship, Tolkien is surrounded by a close-knit band of friends, who inspire him to write. The magical splendour of Middle Earth takes shape in Tolkien's mind and Edith becomes the inspiration for elf princess Arwen Evenstar.
