Read The History First,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: A Man for All Seasons (Special Edition) (DVD)
I suggest you read the history of St. Thomas More before watching the movie. For me I am glad I knew the history first because it was a bit hard to follow just what was going on. It was an eye opening movie on just how people can be persuaded to change their views. I am so happy that Thomas More stood by his principals and did not betray his belief's.

In a real sense, the battle between Henry and More was Divine Right v. Divine Right. If one believes in such, then it is "God" in conflict with Himself.

It was more like Divine Right vs Divine Might. Anyone can say he has Divine Rights, but to have the muscle, it's Divine Might. More believe he was in the right side of God; King Henery believed likewise: he had the monarchy, plus the military. What did More have? Books. Case close.
