Creation

Distributor: D Films
The Opening Night Gala at the Toronto International Film Festival. Features riveting, impassioned performances from real-life couple Paul Bettany and Jennifer Connelly, Creation is a profoundly humanist rendering of the story of a man whose scientific ideas famously and irrevocably changed the world.

A world-renowned scientist, and a dedicated family man struggling to accept his daughter's death, Charles Darwin (Paul Bettany) is torn between his love for his deeply religious wife and his own growing belief in a world where God has no place. He finds himself caught in a battle between faith and reason, love and truth.

This is the extraordinary story of Charles Darwin and how his master-work "The Origin of Species" came to light. It tells of a global revolution played out in the confines of a small English village; a passionate marriage torn apart by the most provocative idea in history - evolution; and a theory saved from extinction by the logic of a child.
