- Based on a true story, C S Lewis (Anthony Hopkins) is a world renowned writer and professor. Unmarried he leads a gentlemans life filled by intellectual pursuits, remaining untouched by any great passion, until he meets Joy Gresham (Debra Winger). A feisty, abrasive New York divorcee, Joy's sharp edged no-nonsense attitude takes Lewis by surprise. Slowly he opens his heart to this woman, and their romance shatters the walls of his cloistered world. But life is made up of delicate balances, and Lewis must confront a terrible truth; that a heart awakened to great love is also awakened to great pain.
