Canonized 400 years after his death, Saint Thomas More served as a major political and philosophical figure during the reign of Henry VIII, which led to his patron saint status for politicians, civil servants, and lawyers. This adaptation of the 1960 stage play of the same name elevated More's legacy within popular culture as it won multiple Oscars, including Best Picture for 1966. Focusing on the last year's of More's life, A Man for All Seasons studies More's conviction when opposing an annulment of the marriage between King Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon, and his steadfastness in that position amid increasing threats from the crown.
