Reviews - What do customers think about C S Lewis: Through The Shadowlands?
excellent story...horendous music! Nov 10, 2005
this film is a monumentally better depiction of the events and faith of C.S. Lewis and his relationship with Joy. Joss Ackland is excellent as Lewis and the faith that drove and sustained lewis is never undermined by hollywood emotionalism as in the Attenburough film staring Anthony Hopkins. Hopkins is just outright boring and dull witted as Lewis.
This film is far better save the score! if you can make it through your perserverance will reward you.
Stop the Music! Aug 17, 2005
In nearly every way, this television adaptation is more satisfying & certainly better acted than the better known movie of the same name. As C.S. Lewis, Joss Ackland is far more heartbreaking & believable than Hopkins. In the movie, Hopkins does his put-upon somnambulist act that he has used so often before (e.g., "The Remains of the Day"); Ackland, by contrast, presents a wrenching portrait of a man who awakens to the possibility of love just as that love is snatched away from him. And it's hard to imagine a finer performance than Claire Bloom's. She must be the most overlooked actress in the world. She seems incapable of giving a bad performance.
But this television production is marred by the excruciating music throughout. I wonder what author Wm. Nicholson thought of it when he first heard that ghastly music polluting his beautiful screenplay? The dreadful score makes the television production very nearly unwatchable. If only it could be eliminated, I expect I'd give the show five stars. As it is, three is generous.
Faith challenged and justified Jun 20, 2005
Joss Ackland's portrayal of C.S. Lewis during this most trying time will bring tears to any real man. I have to wonder how I would fair at such a trial and pray I never know.
This is a fabulous story for any family to enjoy together. Truly the life we live now is the land of shadows.
