To Kill a King
British filmmaker Mike Barker directs the political costume-drama To Kill a King. Set in 1645 at the end of the English Civil War, General Thomas Fairfax (Dougray Scott) celebrates the victory with his right-hand man Oliver Cromwell (Tim Roth). While, King Charles I (Rupert Everett) is held prisoner, he appeals to the sensibilities of Fairfax's wife, Lady Anne (Olivia Williams). The old friends disagree over what to do about the king; Fairfax is willing to compromise and Cromwell is far more strict. The Speaker of the House, Denzil Holles (James Bolam), leads a group of conspirators to make an illegal deal with the king, but they are discovered and subsequently punished. The king is put on trial and executed, making Cromwell in charge. The conclusion involves a reunion between Fairfax and a dying Cromwell. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi

    Great for Periods


    This movie is great if you like this time period, but if history is your thing the historical inaccuracies will more than likely drive you insane. As a history major I was expecting a little more, so it only achieved 4 stars. Being on blu-ray the quality of this movie was great! While not shot with blu-ray cameras, the sound remastering was teriffic. Video 7/10 (blu-ray scale) Sound 9/10 (blu-ray scale) I loved it, you might too
