Film: A Man for All Seasons (1966) Cert 12A

19:00-21:00 Irish Linen Centre & Lisburn Museum

With a screenplay by Robert Bolt based on his 1960 play, this biographical film stars Paul Scofield who won a Best Actor Oscar for his portrayal of Sir Thomas More, Lord Chancellor of England under Henry VIII. Exploring Sir Thomas More’s experiences, the film examines issues surrounding religious and social change and matters of individual conscience at the time of the Reformation. The film reflects a rapidly changing time when Henry VIII was awarded both accolades of Defender of the Faith by Rome (1521) and Supreme Head of the Church of England (1534). A Man for All Seasons launches Lisburn Museum’s talks commemorating the 2017 quincentenary of the Reformation.
