Creation – The movie about the life of Charles DarwinPosted: September 16, 2009
Due for release in Australia in the first half of 2010, Creation is a movie about Charles Darwin and The Origin of Species. Starring Paul Bettany and Jennifer Connolly, the film explores the relationship between Charles and Emma, how they coped with the loss of a child and the ramifications of the publication of Darwin’s great book. Bettany and Connolly are married in real life, and should have excellent on-screen chemistry.
The film was debuted last week at the Toronto Film Festival, and there has been some concern that it won’t be distributed in The States.
However as Larry Moran points out at Sandwalk, this may all be a ploy to drum up publicity or start a bidding war. As a film that is getting a mainstream release, I suspect there will probably be not a lot of science in the movie but that won’t stop me dragging Other Half along to see it.
