Format: Blu-ray
'Creation' premiered in North America at the Toronto Film Festival to rave reviews, then opened in a handful of cities across North America and seems to have sunk out of sight. Several of us petitioned to have it shown more widely, but nothing came of it. The National Center for Science Education tells me this seems to be lack of interest, rather than any particular anti-evolution campaign.

Having now watched the Blu-ray release, my reaction is mixed. It's a superb acting job by all concerned, especially new-comer Martha Grant as Darwin's eldest daughter, Annie, who perfectly portrays the spirit of Charles' and Emma's 'dear child' who died at ten. It's easy to see Paul Bettany as Darwin, in perhaps the first film version to show the invalid Darwin suffering from nausea, shaking palsy, and hypochondria. His spirit of scientific inquiry is caught as he makes notes on the newborn Annie, and later uses the same approach on Jenny the Orang-utan. Jennifer Connelley plays Emma's Darwin perfectly, and a real strength of the film is the use of the real-lie husband/wife team to bring verisimilitude to the marriage.

The film is not (and perhaps does not try to be) an historical account, nor is it a scientific documentary a la Nova. 'Creation' I think refers more to the agonies of Charles Darwin wrestling with the scientific, philosophical, and personal issues inherent in his study of evolution, and specifically the Creation of his book, Origin of Species. The well-known themes are present, but presented with great intimacy: Charles' physical reaction to the suggestion 'You have killed God, Sir!", his delay to publish Origin in consequence of psychosomatic illness, the arrival of Alfred Wallace's letter, and the final flurry of writing.

"Charles Darwin's "The Origin of Species," first published in 1859, has been called the biggest single idea in the history of thought.

This is the story of how it came to be written."

The above appears printed on-screen at the beginning of this wonderful film that stars real-life married couple Paul Bettany and Jennifer Connelly as Charles and Emma Darwin.

(Charles Darwin's environment was one of extreme supernaturalism. Emma, as well, was a very religious person.)

This film is partly biographical, partly fictionalized account of English naturalist Charles Darwin's (1809 to 1882) relationship with his eldest daughter, Annie (1841 to 1851), as he struggles to write his scientific masterpiece "The Origin of Species." The important thing to realize is that this film is not a documentary nor does it claim to be one.

(Actually, the 1859 first edition of Darwin's book was entitled "On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or The Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life." It was for the sixth edition that Darwin shortened its title to "The Origin of Species.")

This film is based on Randal Keynes' best selling biography of Darwin entitled "Annie's Box." Keynes is the great-great-grandson of Charles Darwin.

Much of the film took place at Darwin's home, Down House in Kent, England.

I was impressed with the factual information presented. All the major players who influenced Darwin and urged him to publish are shown and the actors do good jobs in their roles. Special kudos must go to Paul Bettany for his superb portrayal of Charles Darwin, a tricky role when you consider that Bettany had to show how Darwin evolved from creationist to rationalist.

This is a story of a man on a quest. It's very sad. He comes to some very lost conclusions due to extreme heart break, and then misleads his wife. It's well done.. the story of his life.. but so very sad.
