A psychological, heart-wrenching love story starring Paul Bettany as Charles Darwin, the film is based on "Annie's Box", a biography penned by Darwin's great-great-grandson Randal Keynes using personal letters and diaries of the Darwin family. We take a unique and inside look at Darwin, his family and his love for his deeply religious wife, played by Jennifer Connelly, as, torn between faith and science, Darwin struggles to finish his legendary book "On the Origin of Species", which goes on to become the foundation for evolutionary biology. With Jeremy Northam and Toby Jones; directed by Jon Amiel ("The Singing Detective").
