THE LION IN WINTER

Great Britain | 1968 | Anthony Harvey

THE LION IN WINTER

If talking politics ruined last Christmas for you, then take heart. It could have been worse. In this classic costume drama, King Henry II (Peter O’Toole) and his estranged wife Eleanor of Aquitane (Oscar winner Katharine Hepburn) spend Christmas 1183 arguing violently over which of their sons should succeed to the British throne. Anthony Hopkins and Timothy Dalton both made their screen debuts in this much-honored film that earned O’Toole the third of his eight Oscar nominations. The great score by John Barry did win an Oscar. Cleveland revival premiere. DCP. 134 min.
