Long live the new king. But who will it be? The answer will come through the mystical and powerful manipulations of fate emanating from Avalon. The Mists Of Avalon, from Marion Zimmer Bradley's bestseller, retells the Arthurian legend from the perspective of the women who shaped events with spiritual powers. Anjelica Huston plays high priestess Viviane, the Lady of the Lake determined to perpetuate the ways of Avalon. Julianna Margulies is Morgaine, her chosen successor. Joan Allen portrays Morgause, fiercely driven to shape the royal lineage to her own end. Out of the lives of these three and others - and out of the mists - will come a nation's destiny.
