All Classical Portland and Edmund Stone of The Score present a rare 35mm film, A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS, the Oscar winning adaptation of Robert Bolt's play about Sir Thomas More’s epic confrontation with Henry VIII, and Thomas Cromwell’s rise to power. Considered one of the finest films of all-time due to its impeccable casting, superb acting, rich screenplay, and beautiful cinematography, the movie is a provocative study in contrasts. The original New York Times review of the film noted, "Within such magnificent settings as only England itself could provide to convey the resplendence and color of the play's 16th-century mise en scène, and with Paul Scofield playing Sir Thomas, Robert Shaw bringing to life a young and vital Henry VIII, Mr. Zinnemann has crystallized the essence of this drama in such pictorial terms as to render even its abstractions vibrant... A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS is a picture that inspires admiration, courage and thought."
