YAH17 The Lion in Winter

The most royal of the cycle of ‘60s films dealing with the history and castle intrigues of Medieval England, Anthony Harvey’s THE LION IN WINTER returns in a new 4K restoration. At Christmas Court in 1183 King Henry II (Peter O’Toole) argues with his estranged wife, Eleanor (Katharine Hepburn), over whether Prince John (Nigel Terry) or Richard (Anthony Hopkins in his film debut) shall inherit the throne. Complicating matters, King Philip II of France (Timothy Dalton, also his debut) seeks his own fortune by demanding his sister Alais (Jane Merrow), currently Henry’s mistress, be betrothed to Richard, all the while stirring insurrection among all of Henry’s sons toward their father. Screening in the Young at Heart Film Festival 2017.
