Production Wraps On C.S. Lewis Biopic ‘The Most Reluctant Convert’ From ‘Murder On The Orient Express’ Exec Producer
Exclusive: Production has wrapped in the UK on C.S. Lewis biopic The Most Reluctant Convert, directed by BAFTA-winner Norman Stone (Shadowlands).

Theater actor Max McLean stars in the indie film, which is an adaptation of his U.S. stage production of the same name.

Shot in and around Oxford, the film charts the spiritual journey of the renowned writer prior to the publication of The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, and before his marriage to Joy Davidman. The film reveals Lewis as an Oxford Professor in 1950 looking back to the period of his youth from 1908 to 1931 when he slowly and reluctantly changed his views from atheism to Christianity.

Nicholas Ralph (All Creatures Great and Small) plays the younger Lewis and newcomer Eddie Ray Martin plays the childhood Lewis. Tom Glenister plays Lewis’s friend and fellow Oxford professor J.R.R. Tolkien, while there are also supporting parts for David Shields and Owen Barfield.

Indie Spotlight: ‘Ruined’ Is An Lgbt Hipster Ghost Story That Will Make You Appreciate Your Neighbors

Billed as an “Lgbt hipster ghost story,” Ruined is a YouTube-first comedy web series that follows the residents (both living and dead) of a hospital-turned-apartment building in Hackney, East London.

Creator Lily Smith tells Tubefilter she made the series to “address my dual anxieties about the rise of neo-Nazism, and not being cool enough to live in Hackney.”

Six episodes have been released so far, with each episode running under 10 minutes. Ruined is for fans of clever, self-aware horror films like Patchwork and The Babysitter, with a good ol’ dose of British wit. It’s also apparent the series has an excellent production team, which includes Smith and co-director Sam Heasman.
