I feel like this is one of those Best Pictures that no one talks about all that much but it really, really deserves to be talked about. Simply an amazing film.

Very brilliant film, but Thomas More as the good guy?

1966-Wendy Hiller (Alice More): "Take your muddy paws off me you filthy, stinking, gutter-fed turnkey"

1968-Charlton Heston (George Taylor): "Get your stinking paws off me, you damned dirty ape"

Hmmm....I think Charlton got some splainin' to do....methinks he stole a quote...and his quote got famous but I like hers better!

Amazing film. Probably the best period piece film from the English Reformation period.

Impressive movie. Wasnt expecting to like it. Extremely well acted. And also gives some valid points on ethic and standing up for your beliefs.

Thomas More standing up to Henry VIII getting a divorce is the crux of A Man for All Seasons, a film based on a play that at first is a little difficult to get into if you don't have the proper background in history and theology. But by the second hour, we've likely been charmed by More's wit and icy rhetorical style (which inject humor in an otherwise very staid and serious drama), and can appreciate his dedication to his religious convictions. We're outraged by the court's unfairness, touched by the effect of his political silence on his family, and mesmerized by the confidant acting from all involved. Even a bit part like Vanessa Redgrave's adds surprising subtext. I am somewhat amazed this was a hit play on Broadway - it's so intellectual and, in a way, old-fashioned - and that amazement extends to the film's success. But there it is. Sometimes, the world loves a moralist, and in this case, literally a Utopian (not that the film makes more than a glancing reference to More's satire).
