“Will no one rid me of this meddlesome priest?” asks King Henry II (Peter O’Toole) in this classic treatment of the martyrdom of Thomas Becket (Richard Burton), the 12th-century archbishop of Canterbury. Depicting the early friendship and growing rift between the two men as Becket shifts his loyalties from king to church, Becket emotionally dramatizes the personal stakes of principled critique of and dissent from political authority. In English, Latin, and Welsh with English subtitles. (35mm Presentation)
