Tolkien Fans Be Warned
This film is a fantasy version of Tolkien's life. Few facts sprinkled in, and the time line of events are not accurate. I thought it was a poor representation of J.R.R. I would not encourage my children to see the movie until after they have read a biography of Tolkien. The movie greatly misrepresents how Tolkien came to be, adding their own interpretation of events for the sake of "telling a story." One of the most dramatic scenes, which gives the impression of influencing Tolkien's writing, never even happened. This film took an icon, and produced a story for the sake of monetizing his fans. If you are not interested in a even mildly true story of Tolkien, you might enjoy this film.
The war scene is slightly violent (it is war); people being burned alive, blown up, a large pile of bodies with a collected pool of blood at the bottom. When discussing women, a member of the T.C.B.S grabs his own chest and makes a reference to liking plump ladies. Some nude art prints, but not vulgar. There is drinking, and public drunkenness, with repercussions of the latter.
