Win a The Lion in Winter on Blu-ray.

AVForums have three copies of the newly restored The Lion in Winter to give away on Blu-ray.

This new release of Anthony Harvey’s 1968 multi Oscar winning historical drama will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray on the 17th of October as part of Studiocanal’s Vintage Classics collection.

The film was adapted for the screen by James Goldman from his own hit Broadway play and the witty and intense THE LION IN WINTER received widespread critical and audience acclaim on its release in 1968 and garnered Oscar wins for Katherine Hepburn (Best Actress in a Leading Role), James Goldman (Best Adapted Screenplay), John Barry (for the film’s score) and a nomination for Anthony Harvey for his Direction.

In addition to Katherine Hepburn (Bringing up Baby, The African Queen), the film stars Peter O’Toole (Lawrence of Arabia, Venus), John Castle (Blow-Up, Man of La Mancha) and features debut film roles for both Anthony Hopkins (The Silence of The Lambs, The Remains of The Day) and Timothy Dalton (The Living Daylights, Cromwell).

The film is set in England during the 12th Century. After the death of his son and heir, King Henry II (Peter O’Toole) is obsessed with finding a new successor, so summons his three remaining sons. Also summoned is his wife, the formidable Eleanor of Aquitaine (Katherine Hepburn), who he has kept imprisoned for the last ten years. As the Royal couple scheme and cajole with their sons, their passions turn from tenderness to fury as they try to determine who should be the future King of England.
