For years, I have had A Man For All Seasons on DVD in my possession and have been meaning to watch it so when I looked upon it in my collection, I had this strong and rather sudden urge to watch it. There are a lot of films based on a true story with kings, queens, chancellors etc that have either been just decent or bad but I admit that A Man For All Seasons is probably the most successful of tha... read more

I wasn’t sure what to expect from this movie but since it won the best picture Academy award, I thought I should give it a try. It is only the 3rd movie directed by Fred Zinnemann that I had the pleasure to watch (following 'The Day of the Jackal’ and ‘The Nun's Story’) and I’m more and more impressed every time by his work.

Henry VIII wants to divorce his wife, and seeks the approval of the aristocracy. Sir Thomas More is a man of principle and reason, and is thus placed in a difficult position: should he stand up for his principles, risking the wrath of a corrupt King fond of executing people for treason?

" FilmStruck- 2hrs. First Viewing It's a well made film, filled with great craft and some superb performances, but A Man for All Seasons is just too staid to make anything resembling a lasting impression. Paul Scofield is a sturdy anchor for the film, giving a cold but empathetic performance, but Robert Shaw's two scenes brim with such vitality that it's hard not to wish he had had a stronger presence in the film. Everything is just fine, and that's really my major takeaway; it's all good, and I "
