Paul Bettany & Jennifer Connelly star as Mr. & Mrs. Charles Darwin.
WHY WE PICKED IT: This elegant look at the life of Darwin remains more relevant than ever at a time in which teaching evolution can still court controversy.
When Charles Darwin discovered the idea of natural selection, he knew that it would ruffle feathers, particularly those of his devout Christian wife, Emma. Real-life married couple Paul Bettany and Jennifer Connelly portray the Darwins in this biographical struggle to reconcile science, faith, and family.
