The Other Boleyn Girl
If The Other Boleyn Girl teaches us anything, it’s that history is full of unreliable narrators. The film attempts to tackle the story of the 16th-century Boleyn sisters and their relationship with King Henry VIII. Mary (Scarlett Johansson) was the King’s mistress and Anne (Natalie Portman) proved hard to resist and became his second wife. History is a little blurry on the finer points of this story but the sister vs. sister antics are soap opera worthy and, for the most part, totally true!
