Synopsis:
"The Lion in Winter", is set in England during Christmas 1183. Henry II (Peter O'Toole) is deliberating over who to chose as his successor, and plans a family reunion in the hope to resolve this. His scheming wife Eleanor of Aquitaine (Katharine Hepburn), and 3 sons: Richard the Lion-Hearted (Anthony Hopkins), Prince Geoffrey (John Castle), and Prince John (Nigel Terry) are all in attendance, and are all vying for the throne. Princess Alias (Jane Merrow) - Henry's mistress whom he wishes to marry and her brother, the young and crafty King Philip of France (Timothy Dalton) are also at the reunion.
With much at stake, rebellion, treachery and deception is rife as everybody fights for their position on the throne.
