Period and Historical
Thrust by their father into Henry VIII's court, the young Boleyn sisters are forced to vie for the affections of the king. We all know he marries Anne in the end but this film, based on Philippa Gregory's best-selling novel, imagines how a love triangle between the two sisters and Henry might have looked. It plays fast and loose with historical fact, but with Scarlett Johansson and Natalie Portman as the sisters, it provides a compelling, three-dimensional portrait of the historical figures.
This absorbing drama centres around the creation of the famous painting of the same name by 17th century Dutch master Johannes Vermeer.
