The Unlikely, True Love Story of C.S. Lewis and Joy Davidman
The smart, brash Joy bursts into Lewis’ sedate, middle-aged life and upends it. Lewis is as shocked as anyone to discover that he and Joy have fallen deeply in love – and then almost immediately he must contend with the equally deep pain of losing her when she is diagnosed with terminal cancer. Funny, poignant and insightful, Shadowlands — also an Oscar®-winning film — is a moving portrait of love and loss, faith and doubt, as inspired by Lewis’ own A Grief Observed.
Run time: 2 hours and 15 minutes including one 15 minute intermission.
Recommended for ages 13 and older. Children under age 4 not admitted.
