To mark 60 years this month since the death of C.S Lewis, The Regal Cinema’s Classic Film Series presents Shadowlands. Tickets are just £5.
Based on the life of the renowned author, Anthony Hopkins plays the bachelor and Oxford University professor who spends his free time debating with fellow academics at a pub. Although he seems entirely uninterested in love, Lewis agrees to marry Joy Gresham (Debra Winger), an American writer who is looking to secure British citizenship. Their arrangement soon becomes a romance, and, when Joy is diagnosed with terminal cancer, their bond grows even stronger.
“A touching, fictionalized account of a late-in-life love”
“Here is Mr. Hopkins giving an amazingly versatile and moving performance”
