5.0 out of 5 stars The man behind the scientific masterpiece Sept. 6 2010
By Stephen Pletko TOP 50 REVIEWER

"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.

4.0 out of 5 stars The life story of Darwin Dec 10 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
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.
