| Showtime's Version ("The Tudors") is much Better
I was looking forward to watching this version of Ann Boleyn for the simple reason that I've had so much fun watching Showtime's version now running, "The Tudors".

However, after seeing the movie yesterday, my advice would be go rent "The Tudors" at Blockbuster or Netflix and skip this movie.

It's not that Scarlett Johansson is bad as Mary Boleyn, she does a pretty good job considering what she had to work with. Natalie Portman comes up short as Ann Boleyn. The actress who portrays her on "The Tudors", Natalie Dormer, is much better. There really isn't anything bewitching or captivating about Natalie Portman's portrayal of Ann Boleyn, unlike Ms. Dormer's performance, which is everything Natalie Portman's portrayal is not. Dormer exudes the aura of a temptress with sex appeal galore. Portman simply does not. I think Johansson would have been the better choice for Ann.

Eric Bana is so-so as Henry VIII. Rhys Meyers portrayal is much more entertaining on the "The Tudors". To be fair, Bana didn't have much more to work with than did Johansson. The main character in this movie is Portman's Ann Boleyn, who seems to miss the mark.

The supporting cast was good but overall you should save your hard earned money & wait for this to appear on cable.
