The Lion in Winter vs. Becket



on 4/29/2016

Peter O'Toole plays King Henry II in both of these (though the films aren't supposed to be related) and he is incredible in both. Richard Burton is also great in Becket and overall it's a really good film. The Lion in Winter has fantastic performances from Katharine Hepburn, Anthony Hopkins, and Timothy Dalton. I liked both film pretty much equally, but I think the slight edge goes to The Lion in Winter because the all around cast was better. They make for a good double feature.
