The adaptation of one of my all time favourite books into a movie. It was released this weekend and now I just have to wait and wait for it to reach us out here in rural Okieland!
It's about the machinations of the Boleyn family to gain power in the reign of Henry VIII, by basically throwing their daughters in his lecherous path. It tells the story of the lesser known Mary, as well as the infamous Anne Boleyn, and the heavy price they ultimately pay as a family for their ambition.
It was a wonderful book and the movie looks like it may just live up to it for once. The cast includes Scarlett Johannson, Natalie Portman, Kristin Scott Thomas & Eric Bana. Guaranteed to be full of lavish settings, stunning views of England, treachery, treason and heaving tightly corseted bosoms....a sure fire box office smash!
