Description

Starring Joss Ackland and Claire Bloom. Winner of over a dozen prestigious awards including the International Emmy for Best Drama and two British Academy Awards.

He cried out, "Where is God when I really need him?" This film is about the agonizing spiritual crisis of C.S. Lewis when his wife died from cancer. The love, grief, pain, and sorrow were so shattering to Lewis that his basic Christian beliefs, magnificently communicated in his many books, were now called into serious doubt.

But he picked up the pieces and moved out of the depressing "shadowlands," realizing that "real life has not even begun yet."

Includes 90-minute television version and 73-minute abridged version.

"This is only the land of shadows. Real life hasn''t begun yet." - C. S. Lewis

C. S. Lewis was a renowned Oxford medieval scholar and Christian author, of "The Chronicles of Narnia" and other faith-based books and articles. He was also a confirmed bachelor, but struck up a friendship w/American poet, Joy Davidman Gresham; and later agreed to a marriage of convenience after she was divorced to enable her and her two sons to stay in England. But what began as an act of charity became a deep and abiding love and they married again "before God". Then Gresham becomes gravely ill, causing Lewis to question his faith. This is a superb BBC TV production of the true story that was later adapted into a Hollywood theatrical production. Joss Ackland as Lewis and Claire Bloom as Joy, each deliver outstanding performances; Bloom won a BAFTA for her performance. The 1993 theatrical film directed by Richard Attenborough and starring Anthony Hopkins and Deborah Winger is also outstanding. Both are superb works of the cinematic art and provide a detailed glimpse of the intellectual, theological and moral considerations that motivated C. S. Lewis... the both carry my highest recommendation.

As one who lived a parallel experience....having a low key relationship that strengthened throughout his battle with cancer and culminated with his passing....I could resonate with many of CS Lewis'' perspectives on grief. He has become one of my favorite theologians because his authentic approach to life and its mysteries. This movie is raw and real. I recommend it to everyone, if only to be educated on how to help someone through grief. But I especially recommend it for those who are experiencing grief and want to know that someone else gets it and doesn''t have any easy answers.

The scene that really got me was the following conversation...(paraphrased)
If you were God, would you allow a man and a woman to love each other deeply and lose one another or keep them from love and pain altogether?
I suppose I''d let them choose for themselves.
Would you have chosen differently?
No.

How much greater a love story than Romeo and Juliet is the first and only great love of a 60 year old man, C. S. Lewis, the defender of Christianity best known for "The Chronicles of Narnia." The intellectual man found his equal in Joy Davidman, an American divorce with two sons, whom he raised after her death from cancer after four years of marriage. Joss Auckland is a great C. S. Lewis giving him moral and intellectual stature. Claire Bloom is far lovelier than Joy but brilliant actress. DON"''T BOTHER WITH THE DEBRA WINGER ANTHONY HOPKINS movie. Anthony Hopkins is my favorite actor but he was terrible in this. A travesty.

I love the film with Anthony Hopkins, but this version seems more real to me.

Anthony Hopkins still seems rather good-looking even as an older man. C.S. Lewis was not good looking, brown teeth through years of smoking. Joss Ackland looks more nearer the man he''s playing, like a pair of well worn slippers. Claire Bloom, looked like a mature woman whose bloom of youth had faded. Debra Winger was far too sexy looking. This version also included both of her boys, Douglas and David. The boys seemed like normal boys too - not so meek and mild as the boy in the Hollywood film.

I liked the format also. It had that rainy-day Sunday feel about it. Two old batchelors would have that kind of feel. Joy Davidman may have swept Lewis off his feet, but he''d still be Lewis and Warnie would still be Warnie - two old batchelors - one just in love. Anthony Hopkins quacking like Donald Duck to Douglas in one scene of the film, doesn''t seem quite right. I don''t think Lewis really knew how to relate to a real child. Reading Douglas Greshams book, I don''t think Lewis or Joy really had much time for the kids - they were just swept up with themselves.

This version won''t be for everyone. I liked both for different reasons.

This is the 1985 Shadowlands directed by Norman Stone and starring Joss Ackland as C.S. Lewis and Claire Bloom as Joy Gresham (born Helen Joy Davidman). Don''t get me wrong I enjoyed the 1993 Shadowlands directed by Richard Attenborough and starring Anthony Hopkins as C.S. Lewis and Debra Winger as Joy Gresham, but I loved this 1985 version so much more. The acting is better and the pace or tempo a bit quicker. Ackland has so much more feeling and emotion to his character. This 1985 version was very difficult to find until recently. I''m so glad it''s now available on DVD. A very touching movie, all the more so if you are familiar with the life and writings of C.S. Lewis. If you want to read more about Lewis'' relationship with Joy gresham I suggest you read his book "A Grief Observed". It is available on Amazon and is a powerful and healing read for anyone that has suffered a loss of a loved one.

I came across. Lewis in 1973, when I was 18 or 19. Instant addiction! This TV-movie presents a Lewis (and a Joy) consistent with his writings, a thoroughly admirable man, a true teacher, and a man in love with Jesus. Not a perfect man, but a human being tested by circumstances to as near the breaking point as he had ever been. 20th Century Christianity owes a lot to this man, as you will appreciate when you see this movie.
PS: This is far superior, IMHO, to the Hollywood version.

I truly enjoyed this version of the story of C.S. Lewis and his late marriage to Joy Davidson. There are some wonderful scenes filmed in and around Magdalene College and its beautiful Park, part of Oxford University in the UK.

I Have watched this superior drama since it''s release in the eighties and have never tired of it. The atmosphere, the literate telling of the tale and the actors are uniformly wonderful. I have been reading Lewis since a teen amd have even collected British first editions of his works(which he would probably not encourage)and I believe have read every biography about Prof Lewis. Although there are liberties taken with the facts this version so captures the humane spirit of Lewis that it makes up for all that. I believe it was his friend and physician Dr Havard(the UBQ or useless quack as Lewis called him fondly) who upon viewing this film said that though Ackland looked and sounded nothing like his friend ''Jack'' did none-the less manage to convey him in an uncannily accurate fashion. And so it seems when watching this delightful movie to all the events and characters as a whole.

A touching tear-jerker that nevertheless resists sentimentality. Beautifully understated performances from Joss Ackland and Claire Bloom. Just as effective as the later Anthony Hopkins/Debra Winger version directed by Richard Attenborough, but writer William Nicholson (of the play as well as both TV and film productions) fine-tunes the emphases in different ways that complement one another in equally satisfying ways. This 1986 TV version, however, feels lower budget and seems (?) to be shot on videotape rather than film, unlike the 1993 Hopkins production.
