This astonishing adaptation of T S Eliot's classic verse drama recounts the love-hate relationship between twelfth-century British monarch Henry II and the Archbishop of Canterbury, Thomas Beckett. Featuring a cast of mainly non-professional actors, the voice of Eliot himself, and music by the internationally renowned composer Làszló Lajtha, Hoellering's exquisitely realised film tells the story of Beckett's temptations before his murder in Canterbury Cathedral in II70. Released for the first time on Blu-ray and DVD, this rarely seen film is presented in a newly remastered version, accompanied by a selection of fascinating extras, including three of Hoellering's richly evocative short films, all made in the years before Murder in the Cathedral.
