The Lion in Winter

The Lion in Winter

1183 AD: King Henry II’s three sons all want to inherit the throne, but he won’t commit to a choice. They and his wife variously plot to force him. An aging and conniving King Henry II of England and Ireland plans a reunion where he hopes to name his successor. He summons the following people for the holiday at his chateau and primary residence in Chinon, Anjou, within the Angevin Empire of medieval France: his scheming but imprisoned wife, Queen Eleanor of Aquitaine; his mistress, Princess Alais, whom he wishes to marry; his three sons, gay Richard the Lionheart , Geoffrey, and John, all of whom desire the throne; and the young, but crafty King Philip II of France, who is also Alais’ half-brother.

The Lion in Winter 123movies review

The 134 minutes flew by almost imperceptibly on 123movies, thanks to the excellent acting and the incredibly twisted plot of the beautiful film The Lion in Winter.

Now Best History, Best Independent, Drama, History I associate primarily with this film, because it is a genuine representative of the most popular genre of our time.

1968 was rich in worthy film premieres, but only in this film I saw a perfectly selected cast of actors who perfectly embodied the director\'s idea.

The director Kip Gowans knows how to create a special atmosphere on the set, thanks to this, the film turned out to be one of the best in its genre.

Anthony Hopkins, John Castle, Katharine Hepburn, Nigel Stock, Nigel Terry, Peter O'Toole, Timothy Dalton were able to perfectly reveal the nature of their difficult characters, leaving them in the memory of the viewer as real heroes and favorites for many years.
