NOTE: A Man for All Seasons is a tremendous movie, but it is not historically accurate.  Thomas More was a crude persecutor of true Christians.  Much of his life was spent fighting the Reformation, William Tyndale and the work of God.  According to John Foxe, he illegally tortured Reformers in his own home.

In 16th-century England, the corrupt King Henry VIII (Robert Shaw) betrays the Roman Catholic Church to divorce his wife and marry his latest conquest Anne Boleyn (Vanessa Redgrave). Sir Thomas More (Paul Scofield) is then forced to choose between his principles and duty to his heretical king, who has begun executing the treasonous with increasing frequency. The profound battle of ideals also involves Cardinal Wolsey (Orson Welles), Thomas Cromwell (Leo McKern), and More’s valiant wife (Wendy Hiller).
