Today 3/11/08, our movie group ( Anita, Sharon M., Bobbie S. and myself ) went to see “The Other Boleyn Girl” It had gotten lukewarm reviews, but we all loved period movies so we chose this. Well, we all agreed that we loved it.
The history part was right on. The costumes were exquisite. Eric Bana, playing King Henry the Eighth was gorgeous, but as to “cinema veritas” his salon haircut was not quite like the other movies we had seen about him. He was gorgeous, not sloppy and hairy like the other Henry’s.
Sharon commented that she learned three things from the movie- Get a pair of white flowy nightgowns for her and Bill, always be in control-and I forgot the third J. Natalie Portman was very good, and Scarlett Johannsen was excellent. We highly recommend this film and hope all of you join us next month for our next pix pick!
