“Creation is the powerful and true-life tale of Charles Darwin and the most explosive idea in history…Described by director Jon Amiel as part ghost story, part psychological thriller, part heart-wrenching love story, the film promises a Charles Darwin as you’ve never seen him before.” Oooh good because I never have seen him before.
