Stars: Paul Scofield, Wendy Hiller, Leo McKern

Sir Thomas Moore opposes Henry VIII’s divorce, and events lead inexorably to his execution

The award-winning stage triumph brings more excitement to the screen…with its grandeur and its gripping drama!

Reviews (1)

Irreproachable film version of a play, which has had its narrative tricks removed but stands up remarkably well. Acting direction, sets, locations and costumes all have precisely the right touch. (Halliwell’s)
