Associated Press Published: February 7, 2012

The movie A Man for All Seasons depicts the 16th century story of Sir Thomas More, who was executed by Henry VIII because he refused to approve of the king's divorces and remarriages, or to endorse Henry's unilateral claim that he was the head of the church, rather than the Pope in Rome. Similarly, Thomas Becket, Archbishop of Canterbury, was executed by a 13th century English king because he opposed the king in several matters pertaining to the rights of the church.

"It gets to that interesting point for me, which is frightening, when the state tells the church what to do," Matthews added.
