The Most Reluctant Convert

The Untold Story of C.S. Lewis

 December 12  |  6pm |  Auditorium  |  Free to Attend

Join us at Parkside for a showing of the recent C.S. Lewis movie, The Most Reluctant Convert. We invite you to stay afterward for free coffee and cookies in the Commons featuring new beverage items from the Cafe.

An elder C.S. Lewis looks back on his remarkable journey from hard-boiled atheist to the most renowned Christian writer of the past century.

The Most Reluctant Convert features award-winning actor Max McLean as the older Lewis and Nicholas Ralph – breakout star of PBS Masterpiece’s All Creatures Great and Small – as young Lewis. Beautifully filmed in and around Oxford, this engaging biopic follows the creator of The Chronicles of Narnia from the tragic death of his mother when he was just nine years old, through his strained relationship with his father, to the nightmare of the trenches of World War I, to Oxford University where friends like J.R.R. Tolkien challenge his unbelief.

Written for the screen and directed by two-time Emmy and BAFTA winner Norman Stone (BBC’s Shadowlands), The Most Reluctant Convert brings to life the spiritual evolution of one the 20th century’s sharpest minds and keenest wits.
