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. This takes him into the outbreak of World War I, which threatens to tear the "fellowship" apart. All of these experiences would inspire Tolkien to write his famous Middle-Earth novels.

Cast includes Nicholas Hoult, Lily Collins, Colm Meaney and Derek Jacobi

"A fastidious, keen-minded look at the tumultuous youth of the author of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. While snugly fitting within the conventions of respectable British period biographical dramas, the handsome film stresses both the daunting trials he endured and his brilliance as a scholar and incipient creator. - Hollywood Reporter

A convict in a rural Nevada prison who struggles to escape his violent past, is required to participate in an "outdoor maintenance" program as part of his state-mandated social rehabilitation.

Cast includes Matthias Schoenaerts (The Drop, The Danish Girl, Far from the Madding Crowd), Bruce Dern and Connie Britton.
