The Other Boleyn Girl

Historical accuracy aside, British screenwriter Peter Morgan has crafted a deliciously contemporary period piece boasting a beautiful cast and even more ravishing costumes (thanks to British designer Sandy Powell). Elsewhere, a pre-Wolf Hall Mark Rylance proves his acting (and codpiece-wearing) chops, alongside fellow British actors Kristen Scott-Thomas, Benedict Cumberbatch, Eddie Redmayne and Jim Sturgess.





Loosely based on the life of Mary Boleyn (Scarlett Johansson), this is the story of how both she and Anne (Natalie Portman) competed for the affections of King Henry VIII (Eric Bana).
