Its a Biopic. I'm not expecting 5* reviews.

I don't necessarily think a biopic must be a weaker-than-usual film. Malcolm X, A Beautiful Mind, Lincoln, and Milk, among others, all got very strong reviews. But I'll hold out until I see it (which won't be until mid-June here).

No, but I don't think anyone would argue that Tolkien's early life was particularly cinematic.

We saw the film yesterday and the 3 of us enjoyed it. Considering neither my husband or daughter are Tolkien/LotR fans & that they were asking all kinds of questions and found him fascinating- and understood why I've always found him fascinating, would equal film success, imo. The film only covers Tolkien aged from about 11 or 12 until he's maybe in his early 30's, so no mention of the Inklings. One thing we thought the film did well was tie Tolkien's life events in with how it influenced his writing.
