Mary did not raise her niece Elizabeth as is implied. Elizabeth was royalty and had her own household. Primarily, she was cared for by Margaret Bryon until she was four, at which point Kat Ashley took over her upbringing and education. See more »
Never have I seen an actress take control of a movie as much as Portman did with Boleyn. She stepped into the role so perfectly and did it was so much confidence. I could feel her pain and ambition. I started shaking during her downward spiral and couldn't stop. It was so intense and heart pounding.
Jim Sturgess also made a huge impression. His part was small but his performance was big. I wished there had been more of the brother.
The costumes also should win something, anything. They were amazing and really stood out.
All in all it was a a pretty good movie. It really grabbed you and kept you in their world for two hours. I would recommend this to anyone who's old enough because there is a lot of adult material.
