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 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.
