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.

En lo negativo: amablemente tediosa; progresivamente aburrida. Acompañamiento musical solemne ... read more

I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since I have a weak spot for Anthony Hopkins and since it was directed by Richard Attenborough, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, to be honest, I had really a hard time to care about the damned thing. First of all, I have to admit that I had no idea what this movie was about before watching it. Eventually, it turned out to be a ... read more

“I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since I have a weak spot for Anthony Hopkins and since it was directed by Richard Attenborough, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, to be honest, I had really a hard time to care about the damned thing. First of all, I have to admit that I had no idea what this movie was about before watching it. Eventually, it turned out to be a biopic about C.S. Lewis but, instead of focusing on his work such as the ‘Chronicles of Narnia’ books, they focused on how he fell in love with his wife. And that was already the first issue, was it really the most interesting thing that happened to the renowned author? Obviously, the idea was to focus on a seemingly very intelligent man who has figured out many theories about God and the mean” read more

"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"
