  A Man for All Seasons on Blu-ray and DVD [read more]
  Chequered history
  Eureka Entertainment to release Fred Zinnemann’s A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS, winner of six Academy Awards starring a legendary cast that includes Paul Scofield and Orson Welles, on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK in a special Dual-format edition as part of The Masters of Cinema Series on 20 February 2017.

Ranked as one of the finest British films of all time, director Fred Zinnemann’s (High Noon, From Here to Eternity, Day of the Jackal) A Man for All Seasons was lavished with awards and critical praise upon release for its opulent mise en scène and the incredible performances from its cast.

Sir Thomas More (Paul Scofield), England’s Roman Catholic Chancellor, is forced into a difficult position when corrupt King Henry VIII (Robert Shaw, Jaws, From Russia with Love) demands his approval to divorce his wife and marry his mistress. Torn between his conscience and duty to the crown, Sir Thomas chooses to say nothing, sparking the rage of the king. What unfolds is a battle of wills packed with palace intrigue, political brinkmanship and the fate of man, church and country. In the end, his silence spoke loudest of all. The trailer is at the link.
