(2005) Captivating live-action fantasy adventure based on C.S. Lewis’ beloved children’s classic set in World War II-era England about four siblings (Georgie Henley, Skandar Keynes, William Moseley and Anna Popplewell), who, having been evacuated from London to the home of an eccentric professor (Jim Broadbent), stumble through a magical wardrobe into the enchanted realm of Narnia, where they help the wise and noble lion Aslan (voiced by Liam Neeson) defeat the evil White Witch (Tilda Swinton), who holds the land under an icy spell of eternal winter. Seeded with Christian symbolism and subtext, director Andrew Adamson’s faithful adaptation balances spectacle with storytelling while exploring themes of good and evil to capture the childlike wonder that underscores Lewis’ tale. Some battlefield violence, intense scenes of child peril and menace, and several frightening sequences. (A-II -- adults and adolescents) (PG -- parental guidance suggested) Showtime (cable)
