    In Portman's dynamic performance you can see strength and vulnerability warring for Anne's soul. In this bedroom view of history, it's that image that sticks. show more

    An enjoyable movie with an entertaining angle on a hard-to-resist period of history. show more

    Can't quite figure out what it wants to be. At times it strains to be a stately period drama about 16th-century political intrigue. Then it devolves into soap opera muck and emerges as a rather tame bodice ripper. show more

    I don't know about you guys, but i actually read the entire book and found it fascinating. if the movie is very much like the book, then it should be just as good.

    In our opinion the movie was boring and long and we agree with user:seaside breeze x's review that it was more like a soap-opera. We felt absolutely nothing for the characters because they were a bunch of self-serving despots. It was really depressing to watch such a useless story about useless lives. The acting was fine except for Eric Bana's performance... ugh.
