This is an excellent companion DVD to BECKET. In both films, Peter O'Toole portrays King Henry II of England, and in both films, the story explores the often explosive relationships Henry had with those around him. THE LION IN WINTER was a multi-award winner, with a marvellous performance by Oscar winner Katherine Hepburn as Queen Eleanor, and fine acting from the supporting cast, including Timothy Dalton, in his first major role, and Anthony Hopkins as the future Richard the Lionhearted. In my opinion, it is James Goldman's screenplay that provides the vehicle for all the good performances in this film, although I did think that Jane Merrow's acting was stilted. John Barry provides the Oscar winning music score, which is always a plus on my rating scale.
