Welcome to Reel Britannia-a very British podcast about very British films....with the occasional hint of professionalism.
Join Scott and Steven for their review of a Man For All Seasons from 1966, featuring an Oscar winning performance from Paul Scofield with support from Robert Shaw, Orson Welles, Wendy Hiller, John Hurt and many more.
When the highly respected British statesman Sir Thomas More (Paul Scofield) refuses to pressure the Pope into annulling the marriage of King Henry VIII (Robert Shaw) and his Spanish-born wife, More's clashes with the monarch increase in intensity. A devout Catholic, More stands by his religious principles and moves to leave the royal court. Unfortunately, the King and his loyalists aren't appeased by this, and press forward with grave charges of treason, further testing More's resolve.
