Plot Outline:

Based on the historical clash between Henry II and Thomas Beckett, Archbishop of Canterbury, this story shows how badly nepotism can actually go when one can't fire an appointee. Henry needs to appoint a replacement to the recently deceased Archbishop and, in an effort to bring the Church and his monarchy into closer alignment (with his direction, of course), Henry appoints his old friend to the post. Things go wrong when Becket pursues the will of God instead of his King's. -- bwill

Rating of
3/4 

To its credit, "Becket" moves along at a jaunty pace, where most historical films tend to drag. The relationship between O'Toole and Burton's characters is fully explored and their dramatic scenes are the film's best. I like the way the film makes sense of the often convoluted rivalry between church and state.
