Product Description

Winner of MovieGuide Faith and Values Award, the Gabriel Award, and the Emmy Award. Narrated by Academy Award-winner Ben Kingsley, this multi-award-winning program is the most complete portrait of the world-renowned author considered by many to be the greatest Christian writer of the 20th century. C.S. Lewis continues to bring magic into the lives of readers young and old with his classic fantasy series, The Chronicles of Narnia. He is one of the most commercially successful authors. None of his thirty-eight books have ever been out of print. Broadcast on public television, this illuminating program chronicles Lewis' remarkable life-his childhood in Northern Ireland and the devastating loss of his mother, the profound impact of World War I on his belief system, his acclaimed academic career at Britain's prestigious Oxford and Cambridge Universities, his storied friendship with Lord of the Rings author J.R.R. Tolkien, his transition from atheist to Christian, and his late-in-life love story with his wife, Joy. It features lively interviews with world-renowned Lewis scholars, family members and friends, as well as Oscar-nominated actress Debra Winger (Shadowlands). This DVD is sold in a collectible foil-embossed packaging design. Extra Features: Program Introduction; Tour of Kilns (Lewis' former home); Tour of the Cotswolds and Oxford University; Interview with writer/director Chip Duncan.

About the Actor

Ben Kingsley - Kingsley was born Krishna Bhanji in Scarborough, Yorkshire, England. Ben began to act in stage plays during the 1960s. He soon became a successful stage actor, and also began to have roles in films and TV. His birth name was Krishna Bhanji, but he changed his name to Ben Kingsley soon after gaining fame as a stage actor, fearing that a foreign name could hamper his acting career. Kingsley first earned international fame for his performance in Gandhi. His performance as Mahatma Gandhi earned him international fame, winning many awards, including an Oscar for Best Actor. He also won Golden Globe, BAFTA and London Film Critics Circle Awards. After acting in Gandhi, Ben was recognized as one of the finest British actors. Kingsley appeared in many other famous movies. In 1993, his performance as Itzhak Stern in the movie, Schindlers List earned him a BAFTA nomination. Schindlers List won 7 Oscars, including Best Picture. During the late 1990s, Kingsley acted in many successful movies. He played Sweeney Todd in the 1998 TV movie, The Tale of Sweeney Todd. For his performance in this movie, he was nominated for the Screen Actors Guild Award. His other notable role was as Otto Frank in the TV movie Anne Frank: The Whole Story, for which he won a Screen Actors Guild Award. Debra Winger - Debra Lynn Winger (born May 16, 1955) is an American actress. She has been nominated three times for the Academy Award for Best Actress: for An Officer and a Gentleman (1982), Terms of Endearment (1983), and Shadowlands (1993).
