We went to watch the movie Tolkien tonight. It's a movie about Tolkiens early life before he became one of the worlds greatest fantasy writers. Spoiler: in the end, he starts writing the Hobbit.
If this would have just been a movie about a guy growing up, finding friends and falling in love while going through rough studies with a poor background I don't think I would have ever watched such a movie. I'm not the best judge of that kind of movies, but I would say as such this would have been barely mediocre.
