The Other Boleyn Girl is a film adaptation of Philippa Gregory's popular novel of the same title. Here we are invited to a lavish costume drama that takes us to the early 1500s and to the capricious Henry VIII's court, where the violent struggles for power and love tears apart not only the House of Tudor, but the whole of the English great empire. The film is also a chamber piece that describes the difficulties of living as a woman in England at this historical moment and a drama about the deadly competition between two sisters to win the king's favor.
