Creation commits the sin of thoughtfulness, and is quite moving in the process. Paul Bettany is note-perfect as Darwin [and has] palpable chemistry with his real-life partner, Jennifer Connelly.”—LA Weekly

Devastated by the death of his beloved daughter, Annie, Charles Darwin (Paul Bettany) sinks into a deep depression, and cannot bring himself to finish his book about evolution, On the Origin of Species. Although Annie's death has broken Darwin's faith in God, it has galvanized that of his wife, Emma (Jennifer Connelly). Darwin's associates urge him to finish his revolutionary work, while Emma strongly objects, leaving Darwin with an agonizing choice.

Directed by Jon Amiel (The Singing Detective) and written by John Collee (Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World), this moving and thoughtful drama is based on a book by Charles Darwin’s great-great-grandson, Randall Keynes. Jeremy Northam and Toby Jones costar. (108 mins., 35mm, Rated PG-13)
