Once thought too controversial for American audiences, CREATION is being released in select cities for a limited time.
Don't miss your chance to see it close to home!Creation is the powerful and true-life tale of Charles Darwin and the most explosive idea in history. A world-renowned scientist, and a dedicated family man struggling to accept his daughter?s death, Darwin (Paul Bettany) is torn between his love for his deeply religious wife (Jennifer Connelly) and his own growing belief in a world where God has no place. He finds himself caught in a battle between faith and reason, love and truth. This is the extraordinary story of Charles Darwin and how his masterwork The Origin of Species came to light. It tells of a global revolution played out in the confines of a small English village; a passionate marriage torn apart by the most provocative idea in history?evolution; and a theory saved from extinction by the logic of a child. John Collee wrote the screen adaptation, based on the book Annie's Box by Randal Keynes, the great, great-grandson of Charles Darwin. Described by director Jon Amiel as part ghost story, part psychological thriller, part heart-wrenching love story, the film promises a Charles Darwin as you've never seen him before.
