Creation (2009) Film Review

Creation

Charles Darwin (Paul Bettany) is writing Original of the Species, however he is challenged by ill-health and how his opinions challenge the church and, indeed, his own wife.

It is an interesting story but, unfortunately, not an interesting film. It chops and changes between Darwin as an ill, old man and a youth with his young daughter. This technique works well in some films, but in this it just felt clumsy and annoying. The music was overpowering and overall, it felt like a poorly made telemovie.
