Last night I watched The Other Boleyn Girl. After the recent celebrationof the 500th anniversary of Henry VIII’s coronation and marriage to Catherine of Aragon (in real life and Second Life), I was interested in seeing something set during his reign. From what little I know, the costumes and settings seemed pretty accurate. It’s too bad the plot wasn’t. The movie adhered to the major historical events of the time, but apparently not to the details. Among other things, Mary didn’t visit her brother and sister while they were imprisoned.
