Plugged In really liked 2021’s The Most Reluctant Convert: The Untold Story of C.S. Lewis. We liked it so much, in fact, that our team dubbed it the year’s Best Christian Movie. Based on a stage play written by Max McLean (who also starred in both the theater and film productions), the film checked many a box for us. Thoughtful and resonant, The Most Reluctant convert is the sort of film that encourages Christians and just might open a theological door for non-Christians, too. Our reviewer Bob Hoose called it a “nuanced experience worth having. And sharing.”
But ironically, the film was really hard to share.
The Most Reluctant Convert was only in a select number of theaters for a couple of weeks last year. It came and went quickly and, because of its relatively low theater count, many Christians probably never had a chance to see it at all.
But as of last Friday, that changed.
The Most Reluctant Convert is now available to buy or rent on Apple TV and Google Play. If you’d rather have a physical copy of the thing, you can buy that, too: It’s out on DVD and Blu-ray for $19.99. You can buy the Blu-ray plenty of places, but I’m guessing that the movie’s makers would especially loved it if you visited their own website.
If you’ve ever wanted to know more about Lewis’s journey from atheism to faith—if you wanted to see The Most Reluctant Convert but felt like you missed your opportunity—here’s your chance. And perhaps you might find the film worth sharing with someone who, like Lewis, needs a little more of an intellectual push toward God.
