Tonight we present The Lion In Winter by James Goldman. Starring Alfred Molina and Kathleen Chalfant. Backstabbing, spying, double crossing, and rampant infidelity – a typical family Christmas. Typical, that is, for the Plantagenets. James Goldman's brilliant historical drama pits King Henry II of England against the strong-willed Eleanor of Aquitaine as they battle over which of their sons will inherit the Crown.
