CREATION (Theatrical Release United Kingdom 2009)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.4|5.0 Starsìììì

—is a very well acted and portrayed film. it is interesting to see what drove Charles Darwin to make such a book the origin of Species. This is really a great and well written script and Paul Bettany is a really well chosen as Charles Darwin. Great work for director Jon Amiel. It would be great to see more of Jon’s Work.
