In today's struggles we can see that the question of church and state still burns hot in many countries.
The actors are great, the acting is very good, and the music is fascinating, though voluntarily anachronic: this is not a historical film.
While Thomas Becket's role played by Richard Burton is a fine performance, Peter O'Toole in his role of Henry II is just attonishing.
A beautiful story of filial friendship, misunderstandings, and finding a deeper truth and love. It is wonderful for Church groups and study groups.Published 6 days ago by sdmk

I liked the movie very much. Only Eleanore was portrait as less queenly than I think should have been the case. She fared much better in "Lion in Winter".Published 2 months ago by Renata Bernal
