The Other Boleyn Girl

111 minutes 2008 6.7

Rumors are swirling that King Henry VIII no longer has intimate intercourse with his wife, who has been unable to give him a male heir. So Sir Thomas Boleyn devises a plan to bring his family back to its former heights: His daughter Anne is to seduce the king and give him a son. However, the plan goes awry when the king falls for another Boleyn, Anne's younger sister and best friend Mary.

Although she is already married, Mary gives in to pressure from the family and reluctantly gives the king a boy, but along the way she falls in love with the surprisingly sensitive monarch. This love affair is of course no obstacle for Anne, whose hunger for the throne now surpasses all sisterly love. She implements a plan that eventually splits both her family and her homeland - and leads to her legendary fall. The only thing that can separate them is a kingdom.

Sisters Mary and Anne Boleyn become the mistress and wife of King Henry VIII, respectively. Their romantic riots will tear the Boleyn family to shreds, contribute to political and religious upheavals in England - and lead Anne to her death.
