The Christian Post reported on the movie, The Most Reluctant Convert, and includes an interview with Max McLean here. The following is a short excerpt of their review:

“The film, which theologian Tim Keller said moved him ‘to tears,’ dramatizes some of the events that led to a young Lewis’ (Eddie Ray Martin) atheism — from the death of his mother to his traumatic experience in the trenches of World War I.

“‘Lewis lost his mother at 9 years old to cancer, had a terrible relationship with his father,’ McLean said. ‘He saw the brutality of World War I, the butchery of it. And he came to the conclusion as a result of that, either there’s no God behind the universe, a god indifferent to good and evil, or worse, an evil god. So that was his starting point.’

“The movie was filmed in 18 locations in and around Oxford, England, where Lewis was a tutor in English literature. Scenes were also filmed at his college, Magdalen, and his home, The Kilns, where he wrote his Narnia books.”
