744 words - 3 pages

Director Andrew Adamson’s intriguing film “Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion Witch and Wardrobe”, is based on C.S. Lewis’s novel. The film tells the story of four children who are evacuated to the countryside during the Second World War bombing of London and find a magical wardrobe that leads to another world which has been cursed to eternal winter by the evil White Witch Jadis. Forgiveness is a suggested theme throughout the film. There are many examples in the film that show the siblings have to go through forgiving each other and friends.
The film begins with the children’s mother sending her four children to live on the country side with a professor. Lucy who is the youngest finds a room with a wardrobe and enters it, when send finds Narnia at the end behind the jackets.

Lucy responds saying, "Why of course I can, shaking his hand, and I hope you will not get into trouble on my account." Lucy is ready to forgive anyone who is truly sorry.
