The Lion in Winter, 1968 - ★★★★

Theatrical in its nature The Lion In Winter is a strange film that moves between comedy and drama and at times verges on the edge of being farcical. Despite being too long it all works because the dialogue is so fantastic and delivered so well. Apparently it's The West Wing's Jed Bartlet's favourite film and knowing this it's easy to see how it has influenced Sorkin's writing.
