Although the film is correct to portray Jane as a precocious and talented scholar, it contains a number of historical inaccuracies. Jane was not a social reformer during her reign as in the film. That type of social reform was not part of political thinking during the Tudor era. See more »

This is one of those movies where after you turn it off, it sticks with you. The acting is exquisite and the whole movie is executed with sensitivity. After watching it, I felt like I had to know more about Lady Jane Grey's real story. The truth, as the history books tell it, isn't quite as pretty or romantic as the movie made it seem, but other than that it is very historically accurate as most period piece movies go. I would strongly recommend this film (10 stars!) and would see it over again.
