    Creation Synopsis

    CREATION is a powerful story which illustrates a key period in Darwin's life: the years while he was formulating one of the most important works ever written - On the Origin of Species is a book that changed forever the way people think about mankind's evolution.

    Paul Bettany stars as the charismatic Charles Darwin, a brilliant scientist and devoted father. Inspired by Annie, his treasured daughter, Darwin writes On the Origin of Species and finds himself not only pitted against society's beliefs, but against his wife Emma. Yet the decision to publish his manuscript rests in Emma's hands. Jennifer Connelly plays Emma, a deeply religious and passionate woman faced with a terrible choice: her faith or the man she loves.

    Jon Amiel (Entrapment, Sommersby, The Singing Detective) directs from a screenplay by John Collee (Master and the Commander: The Far Side of the World, Happy Feet), based upon Randal Keynes' book, Annie's Box, about the life of his great great grandfather, Charles Darwin.
