About the film:

Based on the best-selling novel by Philippa Gregory, Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, and Eric Bana bring one of history's most notorious, controversial, and influential love triangles to life in this sultry epic romance from one of Britain?s hottest directors.

When rumours begin to circulate that King Henry VIII (Eric Bana) is no longer intimate with his wife who has been unable to give him a male heir, Sir Thomas Boleyn concocts a plan to bring his family back to prominence: his daughter Anne (Natalie Portman) shall seduce the King and provide him with a son. However, the scheme goes off course when the King takes to the other Boleyn girl, Anne's younger sister and best friend Mary (Scarlett Johansson). Although married already, Mary gives in to family pressure and reluctantly provides the King with a boy, but along the way, she finds herself falling in love with the surprisingly tender monarch. Of course, this love affair is no obstacle for Anne whose hunger for the throne now overpowers her sisterly love, and she enacts a plan that eventually tears her family and her country apart while leading to her legendary demise.

Is there gratuitous sex in this film (artistic value of course) where the "other Boleyn Girl" does all the things her sister would not ? I'm sure in the recent BBC production (The Tudors), Henry had the the other sister first - never let history get in the way of entertaining TV of course :thumright:
