Darwin's great, still controversial book 'On the Origin of Species' depicts nature as a battleground. In CREATION the battleground is a man's heart. Torn between his love for his deeply religious wife and his own growing belief in a world where God has no place, Darwin finds himself caught in a struggle between faith and reason, love and truth.The film stars Paul Bettany, Jennifer Connelly and Jeremy Northam. Icon, if you remember, is also the same group that distributed The Passion of the Christ.
This is not the grey-bearded old man that most people imagine when they think of Darwin. The Darwin we meet in CREATION is a young, vibrant father, husband and friend whose mental and physical health gradually buckles under the weight of guilt and grief for a lost child.
