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.

The film begins with the children’s mother sending her four children to live on the country side with a professor.

There they find that Lucy was telling the truth, and we get a scene into forgiveness when Peter says to Lucky, "I apologize for not believing you, will you forgive me?” Lucy tells Peter, "Of course.” Peter may seem to be the strong leader in the family, but he is always willing to admit when he is wrong. As stated by Bo Emerson, "Forgiveness, laying down your life for others, honor, truthfulness, loyalty" are all modeled by Lewis' story, said Cantrell, who saw an early showing last weekend. "It's got great character messages, whether you take it to the next level or not."
Shortly after Edmund is captured by the White Witch and sentenced to death. Lucy says to Aslan, "Aslan, can anything be done?" Aslan responded to Lucy saying, "All shall be...
