The dimly lit and dulled cinematography is frustrating. The odd camera anglesmany scenes are obscured by a pillar or doorare unnecessary and distracting. But acclaimed writer Peter Morgans adaptation of Philippa Gregorys novel makes this film into a juicy 16th-century soap opera. Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson co-star as the infamous Boleyn sisters, who use passion and persuasion, delusions of grandeur and deceit to vie for the love of King Henry (a miscast Eric Bana) and advance their familys status. Twists and turns leading to a deadly ending will leave viewers wanting more.
