A Man for All Seasons (IB Tech Print)

One of the most catalyzing and complex figures in Western history, Sir Thomas More defied the English Crown, Parliament, and the newly established Church of England by holding strong to his conscience and honoring his spirit. He was vilified and canonized, sanctified and condemned. Robert Bolt’s towering play girds this soaring Fred Zinneman adaptation, A Man For All Seasons, depicting popular, well-regarded minister More (Paul Scolfield, in an Oscar-winning performance) and his moralist absenting from the hotly-contested debate on King Henry the Eighth’s divorce from his wife Catherine, which snowballs into him running afoul of the King’s new religious authority. His silence was more powerful than words. The film also won Oscars for Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Adapted Screenplay for Bolt.

A Man for All Seasons is a picture that inspires admiration, courage and thought.” – Bosley Crowther, New York Times

The Mission

Featuring sumptuous, Oscar-winning cinematography by Chris Menges and a spellbinding Ennio Morricone score, director Roland Joffé’s Palme d’Or winner at the Cannes Film Festival is a stirring historical spectacle that’s a feast for the eyes, ears, and soul. Deep in the jungles of 18th-century South America, two disparate men, a Jesuit priest (Jeremy Irons) and a reformed slave trader (Robert De Niro), must unite to protect a tribe from brutal colonial subjugation. Nominated for 7 Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director, while Robert Bolt picked up Best Screenplay at the Golden Globes.
