The Lion In Winter

In James Goldman's play, domestic turmoil rises to an art form amidst the festivities of a twelfth century Christmas celebration.  The aging and conniving King Henry II plans a reunion where he hopes to name his successor.  He summons his scheming wife, Queen Eleanor of Aquitaine, his three crafty sons, his mistress, and her brother, King Phillip II of France.  Each member of the assembled group uses their own brand of treachery and deception to stake their claim to the future of Henry's empire.  Goldman's screen adaptation of the play, starring Katherine Hepburn and Peter O'Toole, received an Academy Award in 1968.
