Some have called Sir Thomas More the first "modern man." He was certainly the quintessential Renaissance man ... lawyer, statesman, philosopher, linguist, raconteur, Chancellor of England ... and author of one of the great books of western civilization, Utopia. Despite all that, King Henry VIII beheaded Sir Thomas More in 1535 for high treason. This drama takes the audience into the last intensely intimate hour with Thomas More just before his execution in 1535 for high treason. Still wrestling with the moral dilemmas that led him to the block, he cracks jokes, makes up songs, takes jabs at his tormentors and eventually finds peace in his fate. An extraordinary one-man tour de force, the movie sparkles with wit, explores moral questions and provides keen insight into the universal human condition. The show explores conflicts between private conscience and public loyalty and ethical and moral decisions in legal practice.
