Movie: "The Other Boleyn Girl"

I usually don't favor movies that are considered "period" films.  However, there are a few I have seen as of late that made me change my mind.  (Marie Antoinette, Pride & Prejudice, etc)  So I'd been wanting to see this one.  I have to admit that it left me wanting to really know more about Henry VIII and those Boleyn girls.  It also made me almost feel bad for Anne until I remembered how mean she was in the movie.  I was a little confused at the beginning  because I didn't really have any knowledge of the people in the movie and when every one is dressed the same.....it was hard to figure out who this or that Duke or Earl was.  I only knew who Henry, Anne and Mary were because they were the most famous actors.  Anyway, suggestion is to see it, but probably not with kids or the husband/significant other.  It was ok, but it wasn't the bestest ever movie made or anything.  I think Scarlett Johannson's role in "The Prestige" was better than this one.  But that's just my opinion and I am a little partial to that movie because it has Christian Bale, but that's a whole different blog.
