Epsiode 167 of the Unscripted Podcast is with Actor Max McLean, who plays the elder C.S. Lewis in the film “The Most Reluctant Convert” and who wrote the stage play as well as stage plays for The Screwtape Letters and The Great Divorce.
In THE MOST RELUCTANT CONVERT, an elder C.S. Lewis looks back on his remarkable journey from hard-boiled atheist to becoming the most renowned Christian writer of the past century. Beautifully filmed in and around Oxford, this engaging biopic follows the journey of 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 challenged his unbelief. The play and the film are based primarily on Lewis’ memoir, Surprised by Joy, which is licensed from The C.S. Lewis Company.
