About this product
- DescriptionAn extraordinary tale of sex, passion and royal intrigue. This is the little-known story of Mary Boleyn who was mistress to King Henry VIII before he married her older sister, Anne. Inspired by Philippa Gregory's novel of the same name, this film is about great families jockeying for position and using their daughters as pawns in a deadly game. Set during one of the most notorious periods in British regal history, it is a powerful narrative and at its heart is the relationship between two rivals - the Boleyn sisters.

Pleasantly surprised, better than I thought it would be.
I bought this DVD because I have the other film by the same title and I found it very good. This one was a bit different, but still good. I was pleasantly surprised actually. There wasn't anything I can say I dislike about it. I would put it in the same class as the other one l have just as good, just different.

Good entertainment value with much accuracy with the costumes.
Good acting from all characters. I don't believe Eric Bana was a very convincing Henry VIII though, he was depicted as a weak, shallow man who was manipulated by other influential men in the court. His hair colour was wrong and he did not have a very regal way about his nature. In truth Henry VIII was a very forceful personality, with ginger hair and beard and very portly and short in appearance, nothing like Eric Bana depicted. There are some historical facts that the writers got wrong too. Anne's brother George was beheaded because he was 'gay' along with his lover, and after Anne's death Elizabeth did not go to live with her aunt Mary Boleyn, but aside from these points the movie was good entertainment value and worth the purchase if you aren't worried about historical accuracy. I will mention that the movie is named 'The Other Boleyn Girl' however not much of the plot is surrounding Mary Boleyn which is a bit of a let down. A better name would be 'The Boleyn's'.

This BBC version is much better than the recent film version and is a closer reflection of the book "The other boleyn girl" by Philippa Gregory.

The Other Boleyn Girl.
I've read the book and watched the other 'Other Boleyn Girl' film and was disappointed with it. So I watched this one and really enjoyed it. This adaption is truer to the book, the main story revolves around Mary Boleyn rather than her sister Anne (which is how the book was written). The BBC have clearly done a better job than the Hollywood blockbuster. I would recommend this film if you are a lover of historical,costume dramas.
