The Mists of Avalon
Cast: Anjelica Huston (Vivianne), Julianna Margulies (Morgaine), Joan Allen (Morgause), Samantha Mathis (Gwenwyfr)
This three-hour miniseries adapts Marion Zimmer Bradley’s feminist recasting of the Arthurian mythos into a big-budget cable television event.
In ancient England, Christianity is spreading and the Saxons are invading. It’s up to Viviane (Anjelica Huston) — Lady of the Lake and high priestess of the kingdom’s ancient pagan religion — to make sure that the next king will honor both the old and new faiths and thereby banish the barbarian hordes.
