  • "Despite differences in rank and background, King Henry II and Thomas Becket are lifelong friends. The King is in constant conflict with the Church, which refuses to contribute financing to his wars in France, and jealously guards the tax-free status granted it by previous monarchs. When the Archbishop of Canterbury dies, Henry has a brilliant idea: rather than another pious cleric loyal to Rome, he will appoint his old friend, Thomas Becket--technically a deacon--to the post. Unfortunately, Becket takes the job seriously, holding devotion to God and the Church above his loyalty to the throne, or the person of its inhabitant. In opposition to Henry, he proves abler than his predecessors do, and the clash of two powerful personalities leads to destruction."@en

  • "A high-class costume drama with a substantive historical basis, Becket is the true story of the friendship between King Henry II (Peter O'Toole) and Thomas à Becket (Richard Burton), a royal courtier and confidant whom Henry appoints as Archbishop of Canterbury. As Becket takes his duties with the Church seriously, he finds himself increasingly at odds with the King, who finally orders the death of his once-close companion when he continues to defy the throne. Burton is very good and O'Toole is even better: both men were nominated for the Best Actor Oscar, while Edward Anhalt's screenplay, based on the stageplay by Jean Anouilh, won for Best Adapted Screenplay. The basic theme of separation of church and state still reverberates today, while the top-notch production values ensure Becket's place as one of Britain's better historical epics."@en

  • "King Henry II is far from being a saint. He reigns over a Medieval England festering with political conflict and occupies his days with drinking, pursuing woman and wagering war. His constant cohort in these escapes is Thomas Becket. Hoping to force the Church into subservience to the Crown, Henry appoints Becket to the post of Chancellor, and later Archbishop of Canterbury. Becket is reluctant at first, but soon experiences something he has never known before- honor, and a cause worthy of his adoration. His singular devotion to the Church creates an enormous rift with Henry, who is devastated at being abandoned by his friend. Once his former ally becomes a rival, Henry turns to drastic measures. In a catastrophic twist of fate, Becket's salvation becomes the source of his demise."@en
