This is a beautiful, emotional film. Exceptional performances from both Hopkins and Winger. Although the relationship between Lewis and Joy is romanticised in various aspects, it remains believable.
Their conversations are witty and memorable. As good as a film can get!

Aspectos positivos: el título casi lo clavan. Si cambiamos "Tierras" por "Historia", quedaría perfecto, pese a omitirse la referencia literaria a su biografiado. La recreación ambiental, tan brillante como acostumbran las producciones inglesas. Buena interpretación, al fín y al cabo.

"Shadowlands is the true story of the author CS Lewis and his relationship with the American writer Joy Gresham. This is a beautiful movie, set mostly in the lovely English countryside around Oxford in the mid 50's. The period is well depicted, and you feel that you have stepped back slightly in time. The script is brilliant. Emotional issues are handled with great intelligence, and comic touches help to lighten what is sometimes a very dark story. The acting is excellent. Anthony Hopkins' portra"
