The Other Boleyn Girl March 05, 2008

  • The Other Boleyn Girl

      British television director Justin Chadwick, with the help of Philippa Gregory’s inaccurate “historical” novel, re-imagines the love affairs between King Henry VIII (Eric Bana) and sisters Mary (Scarlett Johansson) and Anne Boleyn (Natalie Portman) as a Godfather-esque story of court intrigues, power-mongering and outright whoring. Because of Anne’s marriage to Henry following his divorce from Catherine of Aragon (Ana Torrent), England broke ties with the Roman Catholic Church, thereby giving birth to the Church of England and forever changing so much world history. Unfortunately, the filmmakers reduced the story to how Anne, a pretty girl with lofty ambitions, became the queen of England for three years — not because she was at all powerful like her daughter, Elizabeth I — but because she knew how to cock-tease.

In fact, despite the movie's suggestions that Rice might develop a conscience — he lives a self-serving life of leisure financed by the banks he robs — he never rises up to do anything honorable except rescue the woman he loves (Rachel Bilson) from a vague organization of religious zealots led by Roland (a white-haired, familiarly menacing Samuel L. Jackson).

So she bands together the nerd fraternity to take down the Greek establishment while converting her frat-boy love interest.

      Mandy Moore can't get a break. Here, the darling singer-turned-actress is cast as the underdrawn female lead, Sadie, in a movie about what it takes to make marriage work. Co-starring John Krasinski as her fiancé, Ben, and onetime funnyman Robin Williams as Reverend Frank, License’s premise is simple: Frank won’t marry the couple unless they pass his marriage course, proving they’re ready.
