Darwin Film Released

Creation, the new film about Darwin starring Paul Bettany and Jennifer Connelly, premiered on Friday, January 22, in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston, and Washington, DC.

The movie is based on Annie's Box  (Creation: Darwin, His Daughter & Human Evolution in the U.S.), written by Randal Keynes, Darwin's great-great-grandson. Keynes sums up his great-great-grandfather:

[Darwin's] love for his wife; his observations of his children; his friendships with gardeners, schoolteachers and pigeon fanciers; his fears about death, revolution, bankruptcy, inbreeding...all these things found their way into his theory. He was the most inclusive of thinkers.
