The Other Boleyn Girl


After reading this book last year, I've been anxiously awaiting the release of the film. I had such fun recently, watching this great movie with Amy and Emily. Although the main thrust of the story is lust, infidelity, greed, and many other sinful things (as others have said, how can you write about Henry VIII and not include the scandal?), it does contain great history and beautiful costuming. And Scarlett Johannson was incredible! Whoever would have thought she could have pulled it off? I believe she even outperformed Natalie Portman. If you're looking for a good movie...definitely check it out! Better yet, read the book first by Philippa Gregory, then see the movie.

I drug mom and Ray to go see it last weekend. I'm pretty sure I was the only one that liked it. :)
It was a great movie and I think I am going to read the book.

Still want to see it, and missed not going with you girls. Scarlett Johannson was also great in The Girl with the Pearl Earring. She's so lovely, and is absolutely made for movies of a medieval time frame.
