Deemed too much of a threat, Eleanor gets locked away in a tower for a year, while Henry has been openly living with his mistress. When she's invited to court for the holidays, Eleanor seizes the opportunity to promote one son to the throne, but Henry has chosen another. As if to settle the point, Henry throws Eleanor and his sons in a dungeon, though his mistress makes a strong case for having them killed. It's while they're in that dungeon that one of the film's most famous exchanges is spoken: Prince John: "A knife! He's got a knife!" Eleanor: "Of course he has a knife, he always has a knife, we all have knives! It's 1183 and we're barbarians!" 8:30 p.m. at Domy Books, 1709 Westheimer.
