Customer Review

on 2 August 2000
Initially, one might expect this to go down the route of many other "heritage" films but that would be a mistake. Yes, there are great views of Oxford, yes there are many an eccentric and testy don and lofty views from the high table, but this tale of CS Lewis's friendship and love for the American poet Joy Gresham has much more to offer the average Sunday afternoon watcher. What matters here is the acting from a stellar cast led by Anthony Hopkins. His performance is in my view one of the best of his career. His portrayal of the vulnerable Jack, eager to love and not knowing how to deal with this new experience is illicited by Richard Attenborough with great care. The scenes between Hopkins and Winger are permeated with enormous emotion. Shadowlands is the finest piece of work by one of Britain's best cinema storytellers and is always a film I am able to return to without question.
