Debra Winger was a great candidate for the part of CS Lewis' wife, and there is no other better Lewis than Mr. Anthony Hopkins. A sad, slow, painfully sincere story tells about the love of these two people, their short and passing happiness and her tragic death. But what a brilliant film! The elegiac nature adds to the pure British feel of the movie, while the secondary roles are also so refreshingly endearing and truly masterful. I agree, that's a pity that there is no JRR Tolkien in the film, but even then this is a worthy work. It gives a sense of something dear, fragile and very brisk, like their love in the film is. It leaves with a heavy heart and you only wonder how could a man who had such a tragic life write such great books as he did. A marvelous film and a great praise goes to all the film crew.
