The Lion in Winter, DVD



In the south of France, 1183, Henry II (Peter O'Toole) summons his family to a Christmas conference.

His sons all have designs on his crown, whilst the presence of the King's mistress (Jane Merrow) adds spice to his exchanges with his wife, Queen Eleanor of Aquitaine (Katharine Hepburn).

Hepburn won an Oscar for her performance, and the film also gained statuettes for Best Screenplay and Music.
