The Other Boleyn Girl Movie Review
Director Justin Chadwick's opulent historical drama stars Natalie Portman as Anne Boleyn and Scarlett Johansson as her sister, Mary -- beautiful, ambitious sisters vying for the heart of powerful but intemperate King Henry VIII (Eric Bana). Though both women are the monarch's mistresses, only one can become his queen consort -- but at what cost? The supporting cast includes Kristin Scott Thomas and Jim Sturgess.
Wow, The Other Boleyn Girl was a great movie. It was based on a true story. It really gave me some insight into the history of England's royal famly. I thought that Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson were amazing in their portral as the Boleyn sisters. The costumes and scenery were just breathtaking. The only problem I had with the movie was their thick English dialect. It was sometimes hard to understand. Over all I thought the movie had a great story line and kept me entertained for almost two hours. Out of a 5 star rating its get 4 stars from me.
