THE PROFESSOR AND THE MADMAN
Plot Synopsis: The compilation of the Oxford English Dictionary began in 1857 and was one of the most ambitious, and revolutionary, projects ever undertaken. Professor James Murray (Mel Gibson) took on the challenge of creating the most comprehensive dictionary ever compiled, but knew that it would take him and his team over a century to compile all known definitions. However, by ‘crowd sourcing' the work, that is, by enlisting definitions from people all over the world, the dictionary could be compiled in mere decades. As definitions were collected, the overseeing committee, led by Professor Murray, discovered that one man, Dr. W. C. Minor (Sean Penn), had submitted more than ten thousand. When the committee insisted on honoring him, a shocking truth came to light: Dr. Minor, an American Civil War veteran, was a convicted murderer and being held at an asylum for the criminally insane.
Plot Synopsis: The film explores the formative years of the orphaned author Tolkien (Nicholas Hoult) as he finds friendship, love and artistic inspiration among a group of fellow outcasts at school.
