A man and a woman-their love and pain, life and death, faith and despair
About this DVD:
He cried out, "Where if God when I really need him?" This film is about the agonizing spiritual crisis of C. S. Lewis when his wife died from cancer. The love, grief, pain, and sorrow were so shattering to Lewis that his basic Christian beliefs, magnificently communicated in his many books, were now called into serious doubt.
But he picked up the pieces and moved out of the depressing "shadowlands," realizing that "real life has not even begun yet."
Run time: 90 minutes television version & 73 minute abridged version

What Are People Saying about this DVD?
"No broadcast has so enhanced us the way Shadowlands did. By it came grace."
"It explores the deepest spiritual values. It is about love and death in a very real way… I found it completely compelling… so different, about the kind of things television drama doesn't usually tackle. It is, we should perhaps warn viewers, immensely harrowing at some stages. But it is in the end immensely uplifting."
