A Man for All Seasons First things first, I would just like to tell you how much I enjoyed this movie, great choice. Next, I would like to address a few events and, or, people that were found in the movie A Man for All Seasons . The first event in the movie I would like to look at is when Chancellor Wolsey leaves his title to Sir Thomas more. In the film, Wolsey becomes ill, and upon dying, chooses to leave his position to Thomas More. Upon researching this, I found out the following. Wolsey never personally supported King Henry’s wish to get an annulment, so he wrote the Pope for some assistance so that the problem would be taken care of promptly. However, Anne Boleyn was did not favor what the Wolsey or the Pope were most likely going to do, so she had Wolsey's physician bribed into falsely accusing Wolsey of urging the Pope to excommunicate Henry, so that he could personally seize the English throne. Not only this, but Wolsey had written Charles and Francis hoping that they would lend a hand with the issue, and Henry has also found out about this.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
