LION IN WINTER, THE (1968)
Christmas, 1183: intrigue abounds at the court of England's Henry II (Peter O'Toole), convened at his preferred residence, un château in Anjou, France. With an eye toward succession, Henry backs his younger son, Prince John (Nigel Terry). His estranged wife, Eleanor of Aquitaine (Katharine Hepburn) — no less formidable for having spent recent years locked in Salisbury Tower at Windsor Castle — backs their eldest son, Richard the Lionheart (Anthony Hopkins, in his screen debut). Clever foxes all, the family's various schemes, ruses and machinations against each other launch a dizzying array of plots and counterplots. DIR Anthony Harvey; SCR James Goldman, from his play; PROD Martin Poll. UK, 1968, color, 134 min. NOT RATED
