    I haven’t seen The Most Reluctant Convert movie and I was just wondering whether it is worth seeing.

  2. Lord Argoz says:

    If you click the highlighted text in the article (The Most Reluctant Convert film) it should take you directly to the webpage.

  3. Eric Geddes says:

    It’s very limited in terms of special effects but if you like the idea of hearing and seeing his story from Jack himself it is so worth. it! Mclean is great.

  4. Andy Harrelson says:

    I just hope they get around to doing some kind of permanent Home Media release, but it’s good to know I have a chance to watch it!

  5. Merry Ann Herald says:

    Fantastic !!!!
    Amazing !!!
    Maybe fast forward through the beginning 15-20 min which shows how the film was made , and go to the beginning of the actual movie

  6. Denise Edmondson says:

    I would love to see this movie but I cannot afford $20! I have seen his other movies and listened to books. I hope this will come less expensive soon. God bless you all. Have a wonderful Christmas!

  7. Marie-Luise says:

    for 19.99 I would expect a DVD. I wanted to see it and would pay 19.99 to buy it, but not to rent it.

  8. Margret says:

    I would love to see this, but 19.99 to RENT?.? Seems a little steep. And I would prefer to buy the DVD, so my husband can watch it again next year etc. Hope that still happens in the future!!

  9. Lesley Rebryna says:

    I agree with the above commenters. For $20 I would rather buy a DVD

  10. Amy says:

    $20 to RENT?! No.

  11. Ruth Holbrook says:

    Up to the point where I clicked on “Watch” everything said “Watch for free”.
    I feel cheated.

  12. Amanda Carpenter says:

    It was wonderful! I hope they bring it to DVD

  13. Robin Ross says:

    Where can it be bought?

  14. Robert Leonhard says:

    Without exaggeration, I can report it is the best thing I’ve ever watched. Deeply profound, delightful, and charming.

  15. Joanne says:

    agreed. i really want to watch this movie, but i’d only spend $20 knowing i’d have it forever. hope they release it on dvd and/or stream it somewhere eventually. i’ll look into watching the broadway show for now.

  16. S Bird says:

    How do I watch it on my tv?

  17. Carol S says:

    hope it gets released as a dvd. It looks wonderful.

  18. Vahik Haddadian says:

    $19.99 for
    One time rental is steep and a huge deterrent. Also a DVD? Why not put it on You Tube or Netflix or any other online media platform and make it available for purchase via download.

  19. Loretta says:

    This movie, like any other theatrical release will cost you $16 -$18 – $20 at the box office (here in California) You’d pay that to see an Avengers movie. Why do people always expect Christians to give everything away for free? Someone had to pay big bucks to get this movie made?? Did anyone on here fund the film??? I expect it will move to a permanent platform in the future.

  20. Ann says:

    and it isnt even a full length movie; i was disappointed to see the cost and also how short it is

  21. Alexandra says:

    Actually everytone is complaining about the fact that you just get to RENT the movie for 20 bucks, otherwise, everyone is agreeing to pay that same amount to OWN the movie.

    Also, one thing is to go see it at the movies for $20 and a completely different thing is to rent it for that amount. Why not release it as a Youtube movie where one would pay the same amount to buy it, just like they do with “The passion of the Christ” or “Paul, Apostole of Christ”?

  22. Tor K Torkelsen says:

    Not renting for $20.00. Makes me think the movie is all about money and that does not interest me! Stick it!

  23. Ron Lacy says:

    AGREE with ALL, $20.00 is just too much, especially when it is only to rent.
    I NEVER spend $20 to buy a DVD, but might if it was this one.

  24. Beth says:

    I won’t rent it for $20 either but would definitely buy it. I’ve never seen a rental for that much. Weird. I will definitely buy it when it’s available

  25. T. W. says:

    I agree. You want to win people to Christ. So, the cost to rent it should be low. I hope it will be available to buy at a low price. I wanted to rent it, but do not have $20 to do this. I feel sad. It is probably a good movie.

  26. Katie says:

    I just ordered the DVD on Amazon

  27. Louise New says:

    Koorong are now selling the DVD for $15 Australian dollars at https://www.koorong.com/product/c-s-lewis-on-stage-the-most-reluctant_727985018003

  28. Kim says:

    I think the Amazon DVD is the stage version not the movie

  29. Phyllis says:

    I can’t find this movie anywhere ~ Is it still available?

  30. Karen Holmes says:

    I’m watching with 3 other friends; you can split the cost with others!

  31. Karen Holmes says:

    Hi Denise: I am going to watch it with 3 friends; you can split the cost! If you cannot afford and would like, I would be happy to pay for you! Just email me.

  32. Robert says:

    It seems that a number of people are anxious to purchase a DVD of this story. As a big fan of C.S. Lewis because he experienced World War II, a very difficult time for our world and converted to Christianity. Hope that a DVD of the movie will become available soon.

  33. JoAnn S Sampson says:

    I watched the stage version on TUBBI TV… free. Very good! McClean was awesome!

  34. SF says:

    Seriously, all ya’ll need to calm down. Who hasn’t blown $20 at Target or even Walmart that you only enjoyed for an evening?? If you don’t want to pay it, then don’t, but your complaining about isn’t going to be a “draw” anyone to Christianity as one commenter mentioned should be the main purpose of making this movie Think about the gift you return to the producers that spent a lot of money creating a feature movie so you could watch it. We don’t expect to get to see movies at the theater for free, and DVDs take time to be released when a movie is first shown to the public. Disney Plus does this all the time when a movie is first released – premium rental price for a time and then it goes into the regular library for free. If you don’t want to pay for the higher release rental price, just hold on for a few months, and it’ll be part of the service at some point for free. But please, don’t go all “we should be able to use this as a means of outreach” and complain that it costs you something. Be a light on a hill and give some kindness to those who made it; if nothing else, without complaining.

    Is this rental still available? It said that it was avaliable until Jan. 2. Our Bible Study group would like to watch it.
    I also recommend listening to the Screwtape Letters CD recording. It is done in radio theater style. We borrowed it from our local library. It also includes a DVD of the making of the recording. Excellent recording! If you have the book, you can use it to follow the recording.. though they do some improvising too.
