Blind Spot

SUMMARY

Thomas More, the King’s closest advisor, steps down as Henry VIII becomes head of the Church of England to marry Anne Boleyn. The brilliant Thomas Cromwell—the King’s right hand man—pushes More to betray his principles and sign the all-important Act of Supremacy. Unable to reconcile his loyalty to the crown with his own conscience, More is jailed in the Tower for treason.

Against the backdrop of a country torn apart by the Reformation, two of the greatest legal minds in English history battle for More’s life and soul in Robert Bolt’s Tony and Academy Award winning script.
