A Man For All Seasons

Sir Thomas More finds himself under intense scrutiny by King Henry VIII and his acolytes as the potentially destructive issue of Henry’s divorce and the English church’s break from Rome run through the Court and the country. Can he keep both his principles and his position – not to mention his life – as he finds his family and close friends increasingly threatened by his principled stance? Robert Bolt himself adapted his electrifying drama, which had already been a huge stage success in the West End and on Broadway, for the big screen in 1966 winning a host of awards including Oscars, Golden Globes and BAFTAs for best picture, best director, best screenplay and best actor (for Paul Scofield as Sir Thomas).
