A quick glimpse at the Tudor family line on Wikipedia will yieldhundreds of years of made-for-movie material, but none quite ascompelling as the story of Anne Boleyn. Pair a classic story with airylanguage, beautiful sets and costumes, and some A-list names and youhave Oscar magic in the making. Right? Well, not always. We&#39;ve seen itbefore and we&#39;re not necessarily impressed with royalty anymore. TheOther Boleyn Girl offers new perspectives and dramatic angles on thesaga of wives that is Henry VIII&#39;s legacy, but nearly drowns inmelodrama.<br><br>And it&#39;s not entirely the movie&#39;s fault. Boleyn Girl follows the storyof both Anne (Natalie Portman) and Mary (Scarlett Johansson) Boleyn andtheir relationship with the English court. King Henry VIII (Eric Bana)has trouble producing a male heir, so the Boleyn family offers theirdaughter Anne to bed. When Henry has a hunting accident due to Anne&#39;scarelessness, he is nursed and subsequently charmed by innocent Mary.But Mary is already married, so the King promotes her husband and sendsthe couple to court where he can meet with Mary whenever he pleases.Mary falls in love with Henry and becomes his mistress. Anne, the eldersister, is scorned by what she believes is her sister&#39;s ultimatebetrayal, and plots revenge. The two continue on in these roles forsome time, swapping places in bed with Henry and spurting out babieswhile their relatives egg them on. This isn&#39;t quite how things wentdown in reality, but the changes are minor and seem necessary tocondense the timeline and create at least one sympathetic character.<br><br>The Other Boleyn Girl fares best when it&#39;s exploring the relationshipbetween Anne and Mary. This isn&#39;t the first story of sister rivalry,but the dynamic between Anne and Mary is extraordinarily well-played.Their previous roles and their public images make Portman and Johanssonperfect fits. We believe Portman to be intelligent and coy, andJohansson to be naive and desired. More - we believe these roles mightbe easily reversed. As sisters, their relationship is deeplydisturbing: they love each other, they hate each other, they&#39;re unableto escape the expectations placed upon them by their family. As anolder sister (with an admittedly not-as-screwed-up relationship), Ifound this portrayal very realistic - rich with emotion and complexmeaning.<br><br>I wish I could say the rest of the movie was as artful. There&#39;sconstant allusion and foreshadowing to the Boleyn demise through use ofvisual and editing metaphors. If some details were twisted, otherdetails might have been cut out - too many tear-filled scenes meansthat this eventually feels like a soap opera. At one point in themovie, Anne is sent off to France and comes back wearing a verydistracting &quot;B&quot; charm, which she sports until the end of the movie.When I finally finished inventing what else &quot;B&quot; might stand for(besides Boleyn, there are plenty of other fits), I wondered aboutAnne&#39;s character. She&#39;s now praised as being changed and thus back inplay, but I don&#39;t see it - she was smart and ambitious before, and onlygained a bit of wit during her trip to France - certainly not thedrastic change everyone seemed to be making it out to be. There aresome very poorly done scenes where supporting cast spell out thepolitics of the situation for you. This is a little condescending andprobably unnecessary, if not repetitive. The costumes are beautiful,but the matching dresses become unbelievable and even plain in places.PETA must have a field day with this movie and its use of fur and meat.You won&#39;t get to see Scarlett Johansson naked in this movie, in caseyou were wondering - just lots of fuzzy sex montages, weirdly full ofbacklit hair and fur. Katherine of Aragon (Henry VIII&#39;s first wife) isgiven some of the most powerful lines in the movie, but they&#39;redelivered with such woodenness that my disappointment must be madeknown.<br><br>The Other Boleyn Girl could be so much more. As a hyper-dramaticcostume flick, it does stand out. There&#39;s more than meets your eye, andthe costarring performances are not to be missed. There&#39;s a lot ofmaterial to cover in this story, but a simplified script would havehelped keep this film farther away from melodrama. Especially with atrue story as wild as this, there&#39;s not a lot that needs to be changedor added to grip the viewer. Any embellishments verge on destroyingbelievability and creating situations we can&#39;t relate to.

The Other Boleyn Girl is a compelling film due to the exceptionalperformances and the splendid costumes. Additionally, there is simply aterrific story told about the relationship of Henry VIII and the twoBoleyn sisters, Anne and Mary.<br><br>Natalie Portman (Anne) and Scarlett Johansson (Mary) are outstanding ascharacters engaged in both sibling rivalry and sisterly bonding. In thecentral relationship of the sisters, the film develops the social rolesand imposed limitations on women in Tudor England.<br><br>One of the film&#39;s most moving character portrayals is the mother of thetwo Boleyn Sisters. In the heartbreaking performance of Kristin ScottThomas, Elizabeth Boleyn can only watch helplessly as her daughtersbecome pawns of the greedy men (Thomas Boleyn and the Duke of Norfolk),who use the young women much like pimps in order to line their pocketsand further their own advancement at court. Another sterling aspect ofthe film is the portrayal of Katherine of Aragon (Ana Torent), anothervictim of the men due to the obsessive pursuit of Henry VIII to beget amale heir, leading to his momentous divorce from Katherine andEngland&#39;s break with the church of Rome.<br><br>While commentators may point out the omissions of many of the detailsfrom the novel by Philippa Gregory, the film is still true to thespirit of the book. It is also a faithful representation of the role ofwomen in Tudor age. The film effectively presents the gender issuesfrom the perspective of many of the remarkable women of the age alongwith the reminder of the greatest legacy of Anne Boleyn, which was theindirect result of her relationship of Henry VIII. That legacy was thefuture ruler of England...and also a woman: Elizabeth I.

Overall, the movie is entertaining. I thought the acting was good,particularly Scarlett Johansson&#39;s. The cinematography and editing leavemuch to be desired, and the entire movie seems rushed. If you have anyknowledge of Tudor history,you will recognize the many inaccuracies,but those did not bother me as much as did the fact that importantcharacters were omitted, undeveloped, or even seemingly forgotten (asin the case of Mary&#39;s husband, William Carey).<br><br>There ARE very affecting characters and scenes, but I left the theatrewishing for MORE. The fascinating lives of these people simply cannotbe dealt with in a movie that lasts less than two hours.
