The Other Boleyn Girl (movie)

I watched The Other Boleyn Girl yesterday. It is based on the book by Philippa Gregory. It has Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, Eric Bana, Jim Sturgess, Mark Rylance, Benedict Cumberbatch, Ana Torrent, and Eddie Redmayne in it.

Warning: there is some disturbing scenes and one rape scene.

There are some differences between the movie and book:

1. There was no rape scene in the book. Henry doesn’t rape Anne. But she does tease him a lot.
2. There is no incest part. There are some incest hints though.
3. Mary has two kids by Henry. Not one.
4. Mary doesn’t see Henry when Anne is about to be beheaded. She does see her father to plea for him to save both her brother and sister.

I liked the movie even with the differences. I would like to see the tv movie someday which was on BBC. Thursday I’m watching The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
