Reviews
Mine: A fine interpretation of a great play. Close is the weakest link, making me miss Kate all the more. The rest of the cast is much better, with Stewart doing a really masterful job. Wonderful language.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: King Henry II keeps his wife, Eleanor locked away in the towers because of her frequent attempts to overthrow him. With Eleanor out of the way he can have his dalliances with his young mistress. Needless to say the queen is not pleased, although she still has affection for the king.
