Tolkien (out Jun 13) delves into the schooling years of acclaimed writer J.R.R. Tolkien during the early part of the 20th Century. The wartime scenes are clumsy but this is still a beautiful told tale that shows the value of strong, supportive friends and how they can shape our lives, our decisions and our personalities. Grade: B+.
