The only thing that could come between these sisters... is a kingdom.
I'm tired of these historical soaps...
Hollywood rolls out a somewhat-soapopera version of a tragic bit of English history. The film focuses on the rivalry between two sisters for the love, and bed, or King Henry 8th, who was already married at the time. In fact, so too were the girls, but these things can be dealt with. The king was desperate for a male heir, which not only led him to split the country and start a new church, but also drive an axe between two loving sisters.

Themes here of incest, rape, adultery and rampant greed make this story unsuitable for younger viewers. The historical theme forms a base, but there are characters and tthemes that have been added to this movie to pad it out. It's a tragic story.
