The author of The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings grew up in and around Birmingham. He used many sites around the city, such as Sarehole Mill, Moseley Bog and Highbury Hall amongst others, as inspiration for his stories.
In this film, Nicholas Hoult takes the lead role in this moving take on the early life of John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, whose experiences growing up in the Midlands would ultimately inform the greatest fantasy saga ever written.
