Why am I so afraid? I never knew her love could hurt so much, and I love you and all I want is to love you. Beyond every door I hear your voice saying to me, 'This is only the land of shadows. Real life hasn't begun yet.'

Even though the Hopkins and Winger version had a larger budget, the BBC TV version is just as good. Even though we the issue of cancer is dealt with longer in the TV version, Hopkin portrays C.S. Lewis in more of, may I say, an American way. Both films portray C.S. Lewis with a British actor, but here, we actually forget from time to time that this is not C.S. Lewis and actually I an actor portraying him. This version mentions more about the Magician's Nephew and not the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe more like Hopkin's version. Both include the crying moment between Lewis and his step son up in the attic. Both are powerful and very different. Each is enjoyable if you are a fan of C.S. Lewis.
