Director Jon Amiel's biopic explores the crisis of faith suffered by evolutionary scientist Charles Darwin (Paul Bettany). About to publish the book that would question God's role in creation, Darwin is forced to come to terms with how it will affect his deeply religious wife, Emma (Jennifer Connelly). In addition to his concerns about Emma, the worsening ill health of his beloved daughter Annie soon leads Darwin into a reassessment of his life's work, as he begins to fully realise the impact his theory will have on society.

Marguerite, South Africa. 11 October 2014

Based on the biography ANNIE'S BOX by Randal Keynes, a great-great garndson of Charles Darwin, this is a moving film about a man torn between his religious beliefs and his scientific convictions. Darwin was a complicated personality. Although he and his wife Emma (daughter of famed potter Josiah Wedgewood), were liberal freethinkers, Darwin would eventually give up attending church completely, whereas Emma and the children would continue to do so. Plagued by chronic ill-health and the fear that his children had inherited his sickly genes, Darwin was an adherent of Dr Gully's (Bill Paterson) dubious, and as yet experimental, hydrotherapy and was on his way there with his beloved eldest daughter Annie (Martha West) when she died. This was a bitter blow to the family as they had already lost two other daughters to scarlet fever, and would soon lose the baby Charles Jnr. If it weren't for the friendship and encouragement of explorer/botanist Joseph Hooker (Benedict Cumberbatch), who would defend Darwin's theories to a sceptical and hostile scientific community, and the outspoken views of scientist Thomas Huxley (Toby Jones), it is doubtful if Darwin would have continued the research which eventually produced THE ORIGIN OF SPECIES in 1859.
The film is beautifully photographed by Jess Hall, with a stirring music score by Christopher Young. It deserved to have been nominated in these two categories if not in any others.
