Director: Dome Karukowski

Starring: Nicholas Hoult, Lily Collins

Release: May 10th, 2019

Nicholas Hoult was phenomenal in The Favourite, and I’ve learned over the years to trust his talent.  Not every film he selects is brilliant, but that happens, and I still consider him a rising star.  I’ve seen nothing from Lily Collins that would make me say the same, but let’s assume she simply plays the typical wife-of-the-genius role that’s getting progressively more tiresome.  Then looking at the fantasy shots, which are obviously taken from Peter Jackson, and thinking about the entire biography as a whole and how it’ll play out on screen; I get more & more tentative with each step.
