The Ceremony Of Innocence (1972)
Set in an 11th-century England that's battle-scarred and politically unstable thanks to invasion by the pagan Danes, this sterling presentation of Ronald Ribman's play focuses on beleaguered King Ethelred, who is in need of a plan to save his throne. This unique production features stunning lighting and close-up camerawork to convey the unpredictable time in which it's set. With James Broderick, Richard Kiley and Larry Gates. 90 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English.
