A watchable watch…

I watched ‘The other Boleyn Girl ‘ recently. One word for it: wonderful. Anyone who is old enough to watch, should watch (it’s not for kids, by far).

I learn (in part, from imdb) that it is indeed based on history, albeit a distorted version of it, but as cinema it is extremely intense, and right up there. It turns out to be about some very strong human emotions: ambition and pride, malice and struggle for power, the wishes of a king and how that will bestow riches against a personal sense of right and wrong. Emotional conflict is the theme here, and this film rises right where it matters.

I will stick my neck out and say Natalie Portman will win some awards for this one.

Go watch!

  1. Yes, you’re right, it was pretty disturbing… This is one of those movies that you will either hate, or will have very mixed emotions about… it’s very intense, and however way you like it, it’s disturbing enough to not want to watch it more than once…
