So, is there going to be a special place on the forums (or in hell) to discuss the Tolkien movie? Because I need a safe place where I can rip the movie to shreds and jump up and down on the pieces.
I honestly don't know enough about the TCBS to answer this. Was there any question of their beliefs? Did anyone challenge their Christianity? And yes, I agree that you wouldn't limit the film to his early life, but I can understand why doing so might make for an odd story flow.Well, if such conversations happened with the Inklings, why not with TCBS as well?
Also, a film focused on Tolkien's faith likely wouldn't limit itself to his early life....
Considering the flak they caught for the changes they did make, this one would bring down the very heavens upon themThus, it would be easy to invent a fictitious schoolmate who took issue with Tolkien's Catholicism and challenged him on it in some way to bring out those issues, if one wanted to.
