My husband and I saw this movie last Tuesday night. It was great, we have the whole theater to ourselves. We could have spiced up our date, except that the whole theater was freezing. We snuggled for warmth, it was too cold for anything else.

I've heard a few people were disappointed with this movie. Mostly, people who are familiar with the story, and who are history buffs. It's based on a novel written by Philippa Gregory. I love the book. It's written well. I like Natalie Portman's role in this film. I think she did it well. Eric Bana is very yummy, and Scarlett did a wonderful job being the 'nice' sister.

If you really want to have fun with this movie, forgot history, forget everything else. Just enjoy the movie itself. Then it's a great movie.
