Audience Reviews for The Other Boleyn Girl
Well I guess I have to give Jodhi May credit for portraying Anne to be such a bitch. She (Anne) probably was in real life. Anyway I couldn't appreciate this movie enough to give it more than two stars. I wasn't compelled to root for anyone except Mary and even then it was a lukewarm feeling. I do like Natascha McElhone essentially and maybe she played the character a little too simply for me. I wanted to see even more emotion than what she gave.
This was a good film :) I was surprised since I accidentally got the 2003 version, but it was a pleasant surprise. This BBC production was actually just fine, and I was surprised that I recognized so many faces -.-x Anyway, worth a watch, but now I need to get the right version.
In terms of accuracy to the original plot of the novel, this version is much better than the recent film. Events are trucated too, but there are few if any continuity errors and all loose ends are tied up. However, this version is quite low budget - resulting in sets and props that look quite rural and too plain for wealthy homes of the period, as Tudor nobility were rather into showing off their wealth. So the two have their different strengths and weaknesses. If you want a version that sticks more to the novel, this one is for you. If however you want a sense of the wealth and glamour of the royal court, the 2008 version is better.
