Ambitious Boleyn sisters Anne and Mary compete for the heart of powerful but intemperate King Henry VIII in this opulent historical drama.
"If you want a good movie about Henry VIII and Anne Bolyen, rent Anne of the Thousand Days. That was a film that used history to tell a story about real people who had a love to change a nation."
"Overall, the movie is entertaining. I thought the acting was good, particularly Scarlett Johansson's. The cinematography and editing leave much to be desired, and the entire movie seems rushed. If you have any knowledge of Tudor history,you will recognize the many inaccuracies, but those did not bother me as much as did the fact that important characters were omitted, undeveloped, or even seemingly forgotten (as in the case of Mary's husband, William Carey).
There ARE very affecting characters and scenes, but I left the theater wishing for MORE. The fascinating lives of these people simply cannot be dealt with in a movie that lasts less than two hours."
