5.0 out of 5 stars Poignant and heartbreaking, 12 Nov 2012
This review is from: Shadowlands [VHS] [1985] (VHS Tape)
I am fortunate to have this production on DVD after searching for it after seeing it on the BBC. Ackland is very convincing as C S Lewis. The grief displayed in this production is mirrored by events in Ackland's personal life. The ability to cope with grief is very poignantly and heartbreaking displayed when CS Lewis is trying to comfort two boys who have lost their mother.
Shadowlands (1985) (TV)
C.S. Lewis: Why am I so afraid? I never knew her love could hurt so much, and I love you and all I want is to love you. Beyond every door I hear your voice saying to me, 'This is only the land of shadows. Real life hasn't begun yet.'

The relationship with his brother and American divorcee Claire Bloom is convincing as is all the settings. You have real insight into CS Lewis life, christian beliefs and Narnia books.
If you are interested in CS Lewis than this is a gem of tv production, and worth every penny if you are fortunate enough to be able to see it.
