Charles Darwin is a personal hero of mine so obviously I've long been looking forward to Creation, a preposterously long time in coming biopic of one of the most important thinkers that ever existed. His work "The Origin of Species", changed the world forever and I still don't think, even in 2009, during the 200th year anniversary of his birth, that the magnitude of just what he discovered has been fully appreciated. Richard Dawkins claims that Darwin answered the question of why we exist. So Creation indeed, is an apt title for the upcoming movie directed by his great grandson Jon Amiel, whose 2003 Hilary Swank nonsense actioner The Core never did quite go to these depths. Paul Bettany stars as Darwin and his real life wife Jennifer Connelly here plays the scientist's wife Emma. The movie aims to look not just at Darwin's amazing discovery and his political battle in getting it out there but also the strain it caused on his family. Whilst Darwin himself was only a mild Christian (it was his doubting of the bible which springboarded his journey to agnosticism), his wife was of devout faith. The line "Do you not care that you and I might be separated for all of eternity" is so strong that it truly hits home the message of the kind of conflict Darwin and his wife were having with each other. This is the basis for a fascinating movie and although the trailer feels a little timid, I'm hopeful that Bettany will give us another Master and Commander like performance which can be challenging other Oscar contenders come next year. The Telegraph have the trailer for us... Creation is set to open at the end of September in the U.K. but so far has no U.S. release date.
