Aroview: Blue-ribbon adaptation of the best-selling novel by Philippa Gregory, which tells the compulsive true story of sisters Anne and Mary Boleyn, who viciously competed for the love of King Henry VIII.
A history lesson rife with moral treachery and juicy scandal, this real-life Royal Court melodrama is the kind that no doubt would have inspired the Bard himself. Fashioned with aplomb by the director of TV's BLEAK HOUSE, his American 'it-girls' Portman and Johansson prove to be a savvy piece of casting, giving beautifully complementary performances.
