C.S. Lewis Movie Sells Out, Viewing Extended in Theatres

Christian-based movie, ‘’The Most Reluctant Convert: The Untold Story of C.S. Lewis’’ has been extended in the theatres. The movie, which was slated to be viewed for only one night initially on November, will now be extended till November 18.

The movie, which has experienced impressive viewership nationwide, is centered on the life of Christian apologist C.S. Lewis. In its first night, the movie grossed $1.2 million. According to movie distributor, Trafalgar Releasing, the financial turnout of the movie places it second behind Dune. 

The movie was directed by ace filmmaker Norman Stone, who won a BAFTA Award and an International Emmy for the movie Shadowlands.

Max McLean took the lead role as middle-aged Lewis while Nicholas Ralph, star of the PBS series All Creatures Great and Small, played Lewis as a young man. While commenting on the movie during its press release, McLean said, “When we began working on our distribution of the film, we had a handful of theatres, mostly in major markets, with one showing on one day on November 3.’’

‘’I am grateful to the tens of thousands of people who came out to fill theaters in almost every major city throughout the country, which has allowed the run to extend for this very important film!” he added.

According to Christian Headlines, the movie shows Lewis shows Lewis traveling back in time as he watches the key spiritual moments of his life. Lewis famously switched from atheism to Christianity and became one of the leading apologetics of the 21st century. The movie is a mixture of narration and drama.

Lewis is the author of The Screwtape Letters, Mere Christianity and The Chronicles of Narnia series, among others. The latter was made into a series of blockbuster films.

‘’The Most Reluctant Convert: The Untold Story of C.S. Lewis’’ is presented by Fellowship for Performing Arts – which McLean founded – in association with Trafalgar Releasing.
