Today Sir Thomas More is remembered as a brilliant lawyer, as the scholar who wrote Utopia, and, above all, as a man who opposed his king and died rather than compromise his beliefs. This Academy Award-winning film tells the story of More’s opposition to King Henry VIII’s divorce of Catherine of Aragon and marriage to Anne Boleyn. His allegiances to his friends, his king, his country, and his God are all called into question. His struggle exemplifies the central issues of Tudor England: church and state in conflict, the question of despotism, and the onset of the Reformation. Stars Paul Scofield, Wendy Hiller, Leo McKern, Robert Shaw, Orson Welles, Susannah York, and John Hurt. Closed captioned. Color. 134 minutes. Columbia.
