Faith & Film Night: Shadowlands

Join us tomorrow evening beginning at 6:30 for our next Faith & Film presentation, Shadowlands. This deeply moving drama stars Anthony Hopkins as C.S. Lewis, the Christian writer and apologist whose books (including Screwtape Letters and The Chronicles of Narnia, just to name a few) have been read and loved by millions.

The story centers around Lewis's relationship with Joy Gresham, an American writer with whom he falls in love. Debra Winger portrays the vivacious Joy, who shortly after her marriage to Lewis is diagnosed with cancer. Lewis, a middle-aged academic who never expected to experience romantic love, now struggles with heartbreaking reality as his happiness with Joy is cruelly cut short. His faith--which has been an anchor for him since his well-known conversion--is understandably tested at its core.

Both Hopkins and Winger are superb in their roles as persons deeply challenged by life circumstances yet who undergo profound personal and spiritual transformation.

This is a beautiful story and one sure to spark a wonderful discussion about suffering and love and the real meaning of faith. Hope to see you here!
