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 historyevolution; and a theory saved from extinction by the logic of a child.
i liked the movie it was awoesme. although ben affleck wasn’t really that great.
sappy and boring. Bettany and Connolly give strong performances, but the movie is grossly weak on all other fronts.
Paul Bettany gives a great performance. However, that is the only thing worth watching in this film. I felt the director ought to have focused on Darwin's struggle with religion and his philosophy. Too bad. The movie had a lot of potential.
