The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe doesn’t open until Dec. 9, but Newsweek’s Jeff Giles has already seen a rough cut of the film, and while he stops short of giving a thumbs-up or thumbs-down review, he does offer this verdict: ”It’s faithful to the novel, and only as Christian as you want it to be.” Newsweek also has an interview with the movie’s child actors (including cutie-pie Georgie Henley, left, as Lucy), and a brief profile of Narnia author C.S. Lewis, whose life was a lot more bizarre than his devout fans (or moviegoers who saw Anthony Hopkins’ genteel portrayal in Shadowlands) might imagine.
