The Opening Night Gala at the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival, Creation
features riveting, impassioned performances from real-life couple Paul Bettany and Jennifer Connelly in a profoundly humanist rendering of the story of a man whose scientific ideas famously and irrevocably changed the world - Charles Darwin.
A world-renowned scientist, and a dedicated family man struggling to accept his daughter's death, Darwin (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.
