Hollywood Reporter Review of Creation

The Hollywood Reporter has a favorable review of the movie Creation, the story of Charles Darwin and his relationships with his wife and children and the struggle in writing On the Origins of Species. Ray Bennett writes:
Thanks to the writing, pacing and Bettany's nuanced performance, it is one of the best delineations of intellectual and emotional struggle seen on film in many a year. The actor's scenes with Annie and Emma have an extraordinary tenderness that grips the heart just as Darwin's scientific dilemma engages the brain. West is unaffected and winning as the girl, and Connelly, with a perfect English accent, shows the wife's anguish as well as her undying loyalty.
Sure wish I could see it.

  1. Listening to last Saturday's podcast of the UK radio show Unbelievable, I heard the author of the book it was based on indicate that there are talks with a U.S. distributor going on right now. He sounded confident it was just a matter of time. I hope so.

  2. Excellent. Glad to hear it. Thanks for the heads up.
