If asked to name their poison, not many speak for this. I wanted a little time with the man widely recognized as the most effective Christian apologist of our era. Knowing he could talk the talk, I wondered about the walk. Perhaps being engrossed is a function of something to read between the lines. Sustained my interest level to the end. I think it adds to the pleasure to discover this man within this British production. Events in a comfortable English life. I think it makes a difference that they haven't gone very American for Joy, played here by Claire Bloom, but her performance gives us a real person. Not in any way related to a song heard awhile back that went, 'Joy to the world was a beautiful girl, but to me Joy only meant sorrow'.
