Family adventure based on the classic novel by CS Lewis. Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy are deported from London to the house of an eccentric professor during World War II. They find life in the house extremely dull, until Lucy discovers a wardrobe that leads to a magical world called Narnia, where animals can talk and all are ruled over by the wise and benevolent lion Aslan (voiced by Liam Neeson). The others don't believe her at first, but soon all of them go through the wardrobe and discover all is not well in Narnia. The land is being kept in a perpetual winter by the evil White Witch, Jadis (Tilda Swinton), who turns anyone who doesn't obey her into stone. The children join Aslan and the animals loyal to him in an attempt to vanquish Jadis.
With a fantastic performance from Swinton as the white witch, strong turns from the child actors, brilliant special effects and thrilling action scenes, this is perfect family viewing. The escape sequence over the thawing river is particularly exciting, as is the final battle.
