As a child growing up in Finland, filmmaker Dome Karukoski felt an unusually strong kinship with fantasy author J.R.R. Tolkien.
“I was first exposed to The Hobbit and Lord of Rings when I was 12 or 13, and those books were life-changing for me,” Karukoski told The Christian Post. “I was an outsider who was bullied. I craved friends. When I read those books, it was like the characters became friends of mine.”
